TAPPS State Wrestling Championship

The TSD wrestling team went to Argyle, Texas the past weekend to attend
the TAPPS wrestling championship. TSD brought 11 boys to compete last
weekend, out of those 11 boys 6 of them placed in the top four at the
tournament! The coaches were very happy with the results the boys had,
especially with Covid, TAPPS postponing our season, and losing so many
meets and tournaments this year. With only two small tournaments and a
handful of practices, having the boys finish in the top four in team
points which is our best since 2000 is amazing!

Individually we had 5 boys that finished in the medal round including our
TAPPS champion- Zefan Nathanson finished first at the 113 pounds class.
Brandon Brentham(120lbs) and Hawkins Morgan(106lbs) grabbed second, Titus
Sterling(126lbs) and Zachary Hurt(182lbs) both pulled awesome upsets to
win third place. Last but not least, Shadow Tollison also finished at
fourth place.

random deafsports thoughts

when current deaf sports news is scarce,
DeafDigest Sports editor tries to fill it up
with college deaf and elite deaf updates.

College deaf updates are pretty much updated
and accurate.

Elite deaf updates not pretty much so accurate
because of unreliable news upates, web updates
and facebook updates. Still better than nothing!
