Moore top BHS wrestler


Flanked by a team without a senior, junior captain Matt Moore has become the face of Bearden High School wrestling this season.

Moore, grappling in the 160-pound class, finished sixth at the prestigeous Catholic Invitational Nov. 30-Dec. 1, then went unbeaten during the St. Mary’s dual tournament, going 5-0.

“He’s probably our top wrestler rightnow,” BHS head coach Donnie Floyd said. “A lot of [his success] is developing technique, and just hard work.”

Otherwise, “I’ve got a real young team,” Floyd added.

It’s no wonder the Bulldogs have a losing dual match record, given that Bearden has to forfeit five weight classes it simply can’t fill: 125, 140, 145, 215 and 285.

“The whole team’s working hard to come up, they’re learning a lot.”
