Winter Blitz is one of the biggest if not the biggest wrestling tournaments of the season in the state of Maryland. Teams from all over the state come together usually over a two day period in competition. But on Friday, January 11, 2019, the tournament was compressed into one day due to the impending snow coming to the area. Two of our very own Jaguars dominated the tournament and were able to come away with first place finishes! Those two student-athletes were seniors Breezhon Stell in the 120lb weight class and Jesse Ubah in the 182 weight class. I was able to catch up with the outstanding student-athlete Breezhon Stell after the tournament.
Terrence : “What did you do to ensure that you would be dominant in this tournament?”
Breezhon : “I practice as hard as I can everyday. I pray to god before every match. I come up with a game plan and I do my best to execute it!”
Terrence : “What can we expect from you moving forward”
Breezhon : “Moving forward you can all expect me to work hard on the wrestling mat and work harder in the classroom so that I can continue to counties and then regionals and hopefully states!”
You can catch Breezhon and the rest of the Jaguars on the mat on Wendesday, January 16th, 2019 at Flowers HS taking on Wise and Frederick Douglass High schools in a tri-meet! Matches will start at 5:30pm!
