SUMMERVILLE - Cane Bay High School’s wrestling team is on the mat this winter aiming for big things. Last year the Cobras had one of the better seasons in the state and look like a contender again.

The Cobras finished in the third round of the playoffs and posted a 21-4 mark. They bring back eight individual state qualifiers and add another one by way of transfer.

The top wrestler returning is senior Jacob D’Ambrosio, who placed second at 138 pounds last year. D’Ambrosio won the 132-pound class at the Southern Slam recently.

Chase Smith was third at 195 pounds and Berkeley High School transfer Dougie Metts finished third at 113 pounds.

More returning wrestlers who advanced to state last year are sophomore Domenic D’Antico (106), junior Ralph Inge (126/132), senior Loye Burkhead (132/138), junior Spencer Wall (152/160), senior Mason Brown (160/170) and senior Caine Hartnett (182/220).

On Dec. 9, the Cobras hosted the Cane Bay Duals and finished second to Lugoff-Elgin.

The Cobras finished 4-1, with wins over North Charleston (66-14), Wando (47-28), Stratford (36-34) and Beaufort (57-18) before the finale.

“I feel like we wrestled pretty good today,” Cane Bay coach Tim Wash said. “I felt like we got stronger as the day went by. Lugoff is a good team. That close a match, if one thing is different and it could change things. I try not to measure it by the scoreboard, plus it’s earlier in the season. It helps us to see them. We’re going to be going up there (on the weekend) to their tournament.”

On Dec. 13, the Cobras edged Class AAAAA foe Ashley Ridge.

The Cobras got pins by Raleigh D’Antico (106) and Metts (120) and major decisions from D’Ambrosio (132) and Mason Brown (170). Domenic D’Antico (113), Cameron Morrison (152) and Spencer Wall (160) won via decision.

The victory improved the Cobras to 9-1 on the year.
