Boys Varsity Wrestling · West Wrestling shines in Kissimmee


The varsity wrestling team traveled down to the sunshine state on Friday for the Danny Byron Invitational in Kissimmee Fl. Every year Osceola high school hosts this event and it never fails to attract some of the top teams in the Southeastern US. The field this year consisted of teams from GA, FL, and even two teams from New York.
The West Forsyth Wrestling team had a outstanding showing, rounding out a top 4 finish on day 2 along with two other GA powerhouses. On day 1, each West wrestler competed in an 8 man double elimination bracket against Fleming Island, Woodland, Arlington NY “B team”, Camden “B Team”, Lowndes, and Timber Creek.
