Lynchburg - Today's ABC 13 high school Team of the Week is L.C.A. wrestling. The Bulldogs took down 11-time defending state champ St. Christopher's over the weekend by a HALF-POINT to win their first Independent Schools state title.
Three Bulldogs captured individual state titles with four other teammates taking second or third.
Andrew Atkinson, 132 POUND STATE CHAMPION, said "It's awesome just to be like, here we were so close each year and my senior year winning states and winning it individually and as a team is just amazing."
Blake Papet, 195-POUND STATE CHAMPION, said "Every tournament has been preparation for the state tournament. And so to finally bring it to LCA for the first time ever, to be a part of that team, is just unbelievable."
Ike Podell, 145-POUND STATE CHAMPION, said "Oh it's huge. I mean we've been talking to the administration, they've been pushing for us to finally get it. And we've had a lot of support the last couple of weeks and to finally get it done, it's amazing."
