River Bluff’s wrestling honors continue this season as four grapplers were recently named to the SC Wrestling Coaches Association North/South All-Star team. This comes on the heels of a SCHSL State Wrestling Runners-up as a team and 4 place finishers in the Individual State Championships, one of which was a State Champion. William “Tuna” Butler, fresh off winning the 160-class Individual State Championship, will be joined by fellow Gator wrestlers Michael Keisler, Isaac Ortega, and Parker Palmer.
According to SCMat.com, there will be a “Dual Match between Team SC and Team NC. This dual will take place as the main event on Friday evening of the North/South event. The format for the SC North/South Event will not change. The 5A/2A-1A North Team will wrestle against the 4A/3A South Team and the 4A/3A North Team will wrestle against the 5A/2A-1A South Team on Friday March 1st at 5:30pm. Afterward, around 7pm, Team SC will take on Team NC. The losers of each dual will then wrestle for 3rd place and the winners of each dual will wrestle for 1st place at 12 noon on Saturday March 3rd. Wrestling will take place at North Myrtle Beach High School.”
