Rosewood dominates Aycock Falcon Invitational

Rosewood High School’s wrestling team participated in the Falcon Invitational Wrestling Tournament hosted by C.B. Aycock High School on Saturday. The team race was close all day up until the championship finals. The Eagles had five wrestlers advance to the championship finals and one in the consolation finals. All six wrestlers won their finals matches to enable the Eagles to pull away with 159.5 points to win the team title over second place Southwest Onslow with 126 and third place C.B. Aycock with 122.

Rosewood gold medalists were Logan Tortual (106 lbs), Christian Decatur (113 lbs), Timothy Decatur (138lbs), Jordan Todd (145 lbs), and Nyterrius Williams (285 lbs). Christopher Hill (126 lbs) won the third place bronze medal.

Timothy Decatur won the Most Outstanding Wrestler Award as voted on by the coaches.

“Our veteran guys stepped up, wrestled very well and got the job done. The heavyweight championship was a great bout to watch between kids that had split their two previous meetings. Nyterrius was up by one point with three seconds remaining and Torrence hit a beautiful Gramby roll to send the match into overtime. Off the whistle in sudden victory overtime Nyterrius committed to a blast double and secured the takedown for the win,” Rosewood head coach Hal Kilpatrick said. “Our younger wrestlers wrestled well also. Logan Tortual had a huge win in overtime in his semi-final match to advance to the finals. Braedon Reiss, Patrick Jones and William Kimball also had some big wins. We are encouraged by the progress our wrestlers are making. It will be nice to get back on a normal schedule after the holiday break.”
