Highlander matmen return to action on Wednesday

Heathwood Hall’s wrestling team returns from the holiday break on Wednesday night when the Highlanders host St. Joseph’s and Whitmire in a tri-match. Hank Wall’s team will also take part at Dreher’s Blue Devils Invitational tournament on Friday and Saturday.

Senior captain Preston Busbee, a two-time SCISA champion, has been outstanding the early going, posting a 16-0 record at 112 pounds and winning tournament championships at the Cardinal Newman and Taco Bell tournaments in December.

Junior Charles Gray and freshman Fripp Prioleau had fine December performances as well. Gray went 10-3 at 119, while Prioleau went 8-2 at 125.
