The Wayne County wrestling team traveled to Seymour, Tennessee on  

Saturday, December 10 to compete in the Eagle Duals. The tournament  

featured 16 teams from three states: Kentucky, Virginia and  

Tennessee. Teams were: Heritage, Powell, Sevier County, Farragut,  

Stone Memorial, Halls, William Blount, Patrick Henry (Va.), South  

Doyle, Cocke County, Memphis Cordova, Webb, Wayne County, X Team,  

Karns and Seymour.

    The tournament was divided into four team pools of four. The winners  

of the pools wrestled each other in the semi-finals, with winners  

meeting in the finals.

    Wayne County's pool included Team X, Karns and Seymour. The Mat  

Cardinals defeated Team X 65-12, Karns 66-12 and Seymour 47-36 to  

advance to the semi-finals against the 2010 defending champions,  

Stone Memorial. The Mat Cards defeated Stone Memorial 42-35 to  

advance to the finals of the tournament.

    The finals saw Wayne County meet Memphis Cordova. The dual saw Wayne  

County give up several falls to Cordova to lose 48-30. Coach Danny  

Upchurch stated, "We must be more physical against top teams and not  

give up the pins. The Mat Cardinals are still without two weight  

classes due to injury and wrestlers not being able to be at their  

weight class until after Christmas."

    The Mat Cardinals will be back in action on Saturday, December 17  

when they travel to Science Hill High School in Johnson City,  

Tennessee. The tournament will feature teams from Tennessee, South  

Carolina, West Virginia and Kentucky. Starting time is 9 a.m. at
