Congrats to the Tiger Wrestling Team on winning the 2014 State Wrestling Title in Single A. To win the whole thing at home made it even sweeter. The Tigers had 5 individual champs as well – Chance McClure (220 pounds) , Dalton Flint (106 pounds), Austin Brock (120), Trent Reddish (160) and Greyson Cochran (170) won. Mitchell Patton (113), Jake Tate (145) and Morgan Flint (195) also reached the finals and took second.
Watch as Chance McClure becomes one of very few to win a state wrestling title four times in a row. He dominated in this final match of his high school career. McClure will go down as one of the greatest athletes to ever come from Commerce High School. We wish him the best as he goes to the next level at The University of Virginia.
