Summerville Wrestling went against Cane Bay for a spot in Class AAAAA Lower State finals. In a packed house at Cane Bay, the two teams went to war. Summerville came out on top with a very close match scoring 34-33.

“It felt great. We’ve wrestled them three times and had a tie breaker, so it felt good to beat them and have two wins over their one,” said Adian Jurey, a Varsity wrestler.

Summerville has a tough past with Cane Bay: the one match to break the tie was an outstanding one.

“It was wild. People were yelling back and forth at each other constantly,” Jurey stated about the atmosphere doing the match.

Cane Bay’s gym has never been that packed before, until that special night.

“We knew it would be crazy,” Coach Tucker told Post & Courier , “Our fans are nuts and we knew they [Cane Bay] would have a good following in their gym. We knew the atmosphere would be incredible. I told our kids in the locker room to embrace it. I am proud of our kids.”

“It was great. Not only was everybody doing their job, [but] we were away and we got to show them up at their own place,” said Aidan Jurey.

It was special night for the Summerville boys, beating Cane Bay to move on to AAAAA Lower State Finals.

“Zach is a senior, and he’s a captain for a reason. He’s been around the block; he wrestles year-round. It’s good to see his efforts pay off and win a big match for his team,” Coach Tucker told Post & Courier.

Zach Jurey’s leadership showed why he’s a captain that night, winning a big match for his team.

“It meant a lot. We had a lot of opportunity and potential: we gave it all we had just so we could make it,” said Aidan Jurey.

Summerville had been working all season with a lot of potential and they wanted it badly.

“We didn’t get the decisions that we wanted at the first two weights; we got wins, but we didn’t get the bonus points,” Tucker told Post & Courier, “So that was big. Our kids kept fighting and found a way to win at the end.”

It was one of Summerville’s greatest matches all season, and it inspired a renewed sense of school and team spirit for everyone who witnessed it.
