The William Blount Bowling teams both received wins last night at the Pigeon Forge Community Center. The girls team is off to a great start following a sub-state effort last year. The boys earned a key region win that will help their placement this post-season.
The TSSAA preseason rankings at pin-tn.com have two William Blount wrestlers ranking in the top six in their respective weight classifications. Calvin Martin is ranked third in the 106 division after a sixth place finish last year. However, Calvin may likely compete at a higher division this year. Dawson Satterfield is ranked sixth at the 220 weight division after his strong performance at that weight in the state tournament last year. Dawson was quite undersized in that tournament. He competed at 182 and 195 a majority of the season. He will likely be at one of those weights this season.
