Day 2- Recap of the Semi-Finals.
If any wrestler stepped on the scale for the second day of the VHSL State Wrestling Championships then they have earned the right to have placed in the top six.
As the 4A State Championship entered Day 2, Fauquier wrestling had advanced seven wrestlers onto the Championship Semi-Finals.
Seven was the most by any State team while Great Bridge and Liberty HS. both had six.
In 2015 Team Fauquier put eight in the Semi-Finals lead by Matt Raines, Garrett Tingen, Daniel Ariola all three helped Fauquier win a state Championship then.
In 2017 the Falcon also advanced seven to the State Semi-Finals which lead to having four finalists.
But not here to discuss the past as the Falcons are clearly in the mix and atop of the leader board as day 2 started and continues.
Earning a victory in the State Semi-Finals match wrestlers will earn 11 team points and if a win comes with bonus points, they we can add bonus points to that.
While five teams hover on top of the leader board (Fauquier 84, Great Bridge 82.5, Jefferson Forest 80, Eastern View 77, and Liberty 71.5) the start of the Championships Semi-Final round, this is where separation can sometimes occur between the leading teams and the chase for the state crown.
