It was a stellar showing for PWCS wrestlers at the 2019 state championship, held at Robinson Secondary School in Fairfax. Four individual student athletes took state titles in their weight classes.
Wrapping up an outstanding high school wrestling career, Battlefield High School senior Brandon Wittenberg won all four matches via pin to claim the Class 6 126-pound title. Even more impressive is the fact that this title was Wittenberg’s fourth, making him only the second four-time state champion in Bobcats’ history.
Wittenberg’s practice partner Beau Curtis, a senior, won his first state title in the Class 6 132 weight class with three takedowns and a 7-1 decision over his opponent in the final match. Beau’s brother River Curtis, a 2018 graduate of Battlefield High School, was the school’s first four-time state champion. The brothers helped lead the Bobcats to their team state title in 2018.
Woodbridge High School senior Seth Ellsmore showed fierce determination and scored an overtime win to earn him the state title at 285-pounds (Class 6).
Potomac High School senior Syed Moaz earned his first championship, the Class 5 138 title, beating his opponent in double overtime.
Congratulations to our champion 2019 PWCS wrestlers. Your athletic skills and sportsmanship are #Positively PWCS.
