Morgan, Pike claim Upper State wrestling crowns

Neither rain nor snow nor hail could stop Stallion wrestlers Corey Morgan and Cameron Pike on their quest for 4A Upper State championships. While Rock Hill enjoyed early flurries and then an afternoon snow storm Feb. 16, Laurens, host to the Upper State wrestling championships, had only a few snow flurries and mostly cold rain. Except for the hailstorm.

“It wasn’t really hail, it was more like tiny snowballs,” texted Lauren’s District 55 Technology Curriculum Coach Robert Sherer, who sent a video of the odd weather phenomenon covering his deck.

Meanwhile, at the high school gym,the Stallion phenomena Morgan and Pike covered the mats. Morgan placed first in the 182-pound class, while Pike won his 138-pound weight class, both earning the Upper State title and the chance to head to State.

Junior Mike Miller, who placed third in the 132-pound class and qualified for State and who is a SPiN correspondent, promised photos from the championship event.
