NB Wrestlers named Regional Champions!
02/19/2020

What do you call it when you send a group to a Regional Tournament and they come back as Regional Champions with two individual champions too? You can call it Unicorn Wrestling!!


Yes, sir - your Unicorn Wrestling Team has just been named back-to-back Region IV-6A Wrestling Champions! George Marsh (Geojo) claimed his 3rd Individual Regional Championship title and Landon Marsh claimed his 1st Individual Regional Championship title.


Just like in the district match, the team lead went back and forth between the Unicorns and Lake Travis.  In the end, NB came out on top 164.5 to Austin Lake Travis’ 160.0.


If you have not been following Unicorn wrestling, you should!  Remember, the Unicorn Wrestling team is still fairly young and to produce the level that is coming from this team is pretty amazing! You will have the chance to follow them this weekend as 6 Unicorn wrestlers will be heading to Cypress, Texas for the 2020 UIL 6A Wrestling Championship Tournament!

Eight Unicorn wrestlers earned All-Region honors this weekend and more records were broken. We are so proud of all of our wrestlers. Here is a break down of our finishers at the Regional Tournament: Donovan Bernard and Dalton Wilson fell just short of a State berth with 6th place finishes, Cameron Laurel earned the bronze medal and will be competing for a state medal; Aiden Valadez, Noah Cairns, and Braxton Zarate all won 2nd and are advancing to state; and the Marsh brothers, freshman Landon and senior GeoJo, both leave Littleton Gym as Regional Champions! Landon Marsh becomes the first NBHS freshman to win a Regional Wrestling Title.  GeoJo Marsh broke his own record with his 3rd Regional title. GeoJo was also recognized by the coaches of the region as the Most Outstanding Wrestler, the only Unicorn to earn that award.


Dan Gable, Olympic Gold Medalist, world gold medalist and two-time NCAA Division 1 national champion once said, “I never won anything by myself. I was always strong because of help that gave me extra strength to win.”


Hey Unicorns, let’s get behind our wrestlers and give them that extra strength to win!


Good luck to all our wrestlers as they head to state. Stay healthy, stay strong, do your best and continue to make us proud!


GO BLUE!
