GREENWOOD – Robert Lawson decided Laurens’ wrestling match against T.L. Hanna with a decision in the 152-pound class that was the difference in the Raiders’ 39-36 victory. Laurens also defeated Westside, 45-30, in the set of dual matches at Greenwood High School on Thursday.

Laurens (15-11, 6-0 Region 1-5A) will visit Greenwood again on Jan. 30 to settle the region championship.

The team is a group that is better collectively as a unit than they are as individuals,” LDHS head coach Rob Sheffield said. “It’s a true representation of the saying ‘the sum is greater than the parts.’ Their perseverance and performance under pressure is exciting and a pleasure to watch.”
