Oconee County High School just had its best state wrestling performance ever.
Wrestlers from Oconee County High School just finished third in the class AAA state duals last weekend -- the school's best finish ever. But come 2020, Oconee's high school wrestlers won't have the world's foremost competetive arena to aspire to. The International Olympic Committee announced this week that it's removing the sport from the Summer Games, starting in 2020. The committee agreed to pare down the 26 sports it features to 25 so that a new sport could join the lineup. Wrestling has a chance to make it back into the Olympics, but the Los Angeles Times said that was unlikely now that it has been cut. Should the Olympics drop wrestling as an event? What impact will this have on high school wrestling programs? Tell us in the comments…

In the team’s first six games of the season, Jeff Greenfield posted four shutouts, leaving little doubt that the coaching staff made the correct choice.
To everyone around him, Jeff Greenfield’s first game as a varsity goalkeeper for Oconee County High School was more of the same that they saw in the preseason. Inside Greenfield, though, everything was upside down. “I was nervous out of my mind,” Greenfield said. “Butterflies. I was just stoked and couldn’t really grasp the fact that I was going to start varsity as a freshman.” It was the Warriors’ first scrimmage of the season, against Mill Creek on Feb. 9, but Greenfield’s performance showed none of the anxiety inside of him. “Even after starting him, I was kind of wondering,” coach Colin Connors said. “But he made some great saves, even that first game, right away. He played the whole first half and shut them out.” Added Greenfield, “It…
