Illness wasn’t going to stop Lejeune High School wrestler George Vrachnos from taking the state title.
Right before the 1A state championship tournament, Vrachnos came down with a stomach bug. He recovered in time to run through three opponents and win the 1A state title in the 152-pound weight class at the Greensboro Coliseum, Feb. 16.
“The whole day before I was feeling horrible, but my family supported me,” said Vrachnos. “My parents did everything they could to get me better, going to the store and getting me Theraflu. The 12 hours of sleep helped.”
Vrachnos defeated Mount Airy’s Austin Tumbarello 10-4 in the championship match.
