 Bamberg-Ehrhardt ready eyeing second back to back

By Neill Kirkpatrick

Goose Creek – The defending 1A/2A state champion Bamberg-Ehrhardt wrestling team is currently ranked number 2 in the state by SCMAT.com and as the regular season winds down and the state tournament begins they will be looking to become the second squad to go back to back in school history.

The defending champs opened the season atop the rankings but in a hard fought match with number 2 North Central earlier in the year they came up short 40-39. Could we see a rematch in the state finals?

The Red Raiders return several wrestlers that placed and/or qualified for the state individual meet last season which is why expectations are so high in Bamberg.

Two Red Raiders brought home individual golds last season, sophomore Jackson Stembridge at 106lbs and senior KeSean Brown at 195lbs. Stembridge is currently ranked number 1 at 113lbs.

Brown is a two-time state champion at 182 and 195. If he can capture the state title again this season he will join a very exclusive club as only the 79th wrestler in state history to win three consecutive state titles. He finished second as a freshman at 170.

Finishing runner-up in 2018 at 138 was senior Quinton Blake.

The Red Raiders had two wrestler bring home bronze medals, sophomore Tyqueze Stuckey at 132 and senior Anthony Sanders at 145. Stuckey is currently ranked second at 145.

Sanders had a fourth place finish as a sophomore so he will be looking to end his career with a gold. He ranked third at 152.

Sophomores Colby Hiers and Nyguen Glover placed fourth at 113 and 126 respectively.

Four more Red Raiders qualified for the state individual meet junior Donovan Price (120), sophomore Isaiah Washington (160), junior Caleb Bearden (220) and junior Bryce Jones (113).

The Red Raiders also have three who are ranked in the top three in their weight class in Zymire Chisholm (106), Dylan Richburg (182) and Trayvon Jamison (285).
