GREENSBORO — Ashe County wrestler John Reavis finished in sixth place in the 160-pound division in the NCHSAA 2A Wrestling Championships that started on Thursday.

Reavis got off to a slow start, dropping his first round match by a 9-3 decision to Darnel Brooks from North Brunswick.

In the first round consolation match, Reavis bounced back to win a thriller over Jalen Kelly from Bunn. Reavis won the match by a 10-9 decision, getting the win by tiebreaker.

Next up, Reavis was nearly flawless in his match against Lincolnton’s Adrian Rojas, winning by a 5-0 decision.

Reavis moved on to the third round of consolations where he once again shutout an opponent by decision, a 2-0 triumph of Quentin Horne from Carver High School.

In the semifinals, Reavis saw his tournament come to a close at the hands of Croatan’s Charles Corbell. Corbell pinned Reavis at the 4:14 mark of the match, giving Reavis sixth place.

Reavis will look to build on this state tournament run next season for his senior year.
