Montevallo’s wrestling team, split matches in their final home game, Thursday, Feb 2 at Montevallo Middle School.

The team first competed against the Alabama Institute for the Deaf and the Blind where they won 38-22.  

“We really came together as a team,” freshman Jemari Harris said.  “All of our hardwork at practice really paid off.”

They then turned around to tackle the Prattville Panthers where they lost 33-38.

“Although we didn’t come up with the victory, I feel like we did good; we fought hard,” freshman Wilson Massey said.

After a staggering night of wrestling, freshman Ariel Suarez was the only one to qualify for state.  He competed this past weekend and finished 7th in the state after losing a round in triple overtime, 2-3.

“It was exciting to be able to represent Montevallo at state this year,” Suarez said.  “Overall I think our season went really well.  Wrestling has really helped me with my grades and to stay out of trouble.”

This is only Montevallo’s second year of having a wrestling program. 

“I think it offers something to some of the kids who might not have another avenue in sports,” Davidson said.  “It also helps with other sports; it complements them.”
