MCHS Wrestling Makes History

Middle Creek Wrestling Makes History:
 
History was made this last weekend of competition. Darius Mckenzie, Isaiah Olive, Kai Paxton and Chris Jones competed at the NCHSAA Individual State Wrestling tournament in Greensboro on Friday and Saturday.  As a team they finished in 10th place, highest in school history!  Isaiah Olive finished in 6th place; after dropping his first match Friday, he battled all the way back to place!  Isaiah finished the season with a career high 54 wins! Kai Paxton and Chris Jones, BOTH, won their respective weight classes.  The two of them become the first State Champions in Middle Creek School History!
 
Please congratulate them and wish them luck as their journey continues.
