Spring Valley’s Nate Weaver was the 215-pound runner-up at the Palmetto State Classic wrestling tournament last weekend at Irmo. The improved Vikings finished in a tie for 12th place with Gilbert in the team standings.
Weaver advanced to the championship finals with decisions over Justin Sontagg of Stratford, Jason Waters of Gilbert and Nick Wohlers of Chapin before falling 10-5 to Lugoff-Elgin’s Theo Shaphard.
Teammates Antonio Williams and Kyle Stiffler also had good showing. Williams went 3-2 at 140 and Stiffler was 2-2 at 103. Both SV entries were eliminated in the consolation semifinals, one step short of earning a place finish.
