CHS boys state qualifiers

The Coffee County boys' state wrestling qualifiers following this weekend's Region V Tournament. With MaryAnne Walker in the girls' division, CHS will be sending five wrestlers to the state meet in Franklin. 

Central High School wrestling continued its postseason push this weekend, sending 12 grapplers to the Region V Individual Wrestling Tournament at Warren County High School. With a trip to states on the line, Brett Francis, Jesse Smith, Rey Reyes and Chris Speagle punched their ticket to join MaryAnne Walker at the next round. 

To qualify for states, wrestlers needed a top-four finish in their weight class.

Francis won his first-round bout before falling in the quarterfinals. In the consolation rounds, Francis won four straight, beating Cookeville's Samuel Hadlock in the final to secure third place.

Following a first-round bye, Smith won his quarterfinal matchup before falling in the semis. Smith went on to win his two consolation matches, beating Oakland's Nathaniel Gray in the final for another CHS third-place finish. 

Reyes started with a victory before falling in the quarterfinals. Following a bye in the consolation round, Reyes won his next two matches before falling in the third place match to Oakland's Nolan Cook. His fourth-place finish allowed him to qualify for states. 

Speagle won his opening match before falling in the quarterfinals. After receiving a bye, the Red Raider won his next two matches. In the third-place match, Speagle fell to Tullahoma's Jimmy Pearson, but secured fourth place. 

The four boys, along with Walker, will take part in the Tennessee Secondary School Athletic Association State Wrestling Championships at the Williamson County Agricultural Expo Center. The championships will be held from Feb. 14-16.
