Shelby High hasn't ever been known for wrestling elite programs but there is a couple of kids worth watching at regionals and states. Dathan and Lathan Kee have a lot of wins this year between them. Lathan will be 152 and number one seeded at 40-1and Dathan at 160 is high seeded as well at 25-3.

 

Squaring off in practices and at home seems to be paying off. This could be an interesting 2A west regional as both possibly could advance to the state championships in Greensboro. Good luck to both young men in the hard grind to qualify. This regional is being held at West Lincoln High.

Seen them this year. Very impressive. Just feel like Shelby is a sleeping giant with wrestling. Just need the kids to come out. Have some good looking kids at middle school level too, but they had to forfeit match after match because of low numbers. My son is wrestling for the first time this year at Crest Middle and it has been an eye opening experience. He went to the Little Indian Classic and had a blast. It takes a different animal to be a wrestler.

Hardest practice in all of sports at the high school level. Football coaches should encourage athletes to wrestle. Some of best pro athletes wrestled in high school. Lineman especially learn excellent footwork and hand action that would benefit them well.

 

The one sport where you don't need to be a freak of nature in size to compete. Wrestling takes the upmost endurance and committment. Crest has had a number of good kids. To advance as a team and individual in wrestling a great knowledgable coach is extremely important. One does not excel on a personal level without an instructor. Unfortunately there are no clubs for instruction in the Cleveland County area. One would have to travel to Charlotte to step to the next level on the mat.

Dathan did not qualify for states today but Lathan won the west regional at 152 with a pin in the first period. After many years of Newton-Conover finishing on top in the west its looking like Chase is going to take the western regional title. They hold a 60 point lead.
