Head Jackets coach DA White stated, "We entered this Tournament Saturday which was loaded with tough compitation. Gabriel Roberts won the 215 pound weight class. In the Championship finals, he defeated two time State Qualifier from Edenton. At 113 pounds Ashton Adams placed top six. At 120 pounds, Nathan Bowen placed top eight. The kids wrestled well for this being their second match. There is a difference between night and day from their first match last week. We showed much improvement. We are young but are starting to be more aggressive."

Roanoke Rapids next match is away against Southern Nash on Wednesday at 6:00 pm.
