Student achievement was in the spotlight when the Vinton County Local Schools Board of Education met Monday afternoon, March 6, at the District Office in McArthur. The board honored two individuals as well as an entire team for their respective accomplishments.

The honorees were senior high school wrestler Wyant Webb for advancing to the District level in the post-season tournament; middle school wrestler Skyler Hamric for winning his weight division in the Tri-Valley Conference Tournament; and the seventh-grade girls' basketball team, which had a 17-1 season and won the conference tournament.

The first honoree was Webb, as he won his first match and barely lost the second one in the District competition. Speaking on his behalf, Vinton County High School (VCHS) Principal Kevin Waddell stated Wyatt has been a key member of Coach Marcus Games' program and has gotten better and better over the course of his career.

Hamric was introduced by Middle School Principal Jeremy Ward as the winner of the 87-pound weight class and a strong up-and-coming wrestler for the varsity program. He told Hamric to keep working hard and good things will be coming for him and the varsity wrestling program.

As for the seventh-grade basketball team, Head Coach Josh Ruckel explained the girls had a 17-1 record and won the TVC tournament as Cameron Zinn and Tegan Bartoe were named the -tourney Most Valuable Players.

The members of this award-winning team are: Tegan Bartoe, Rylee Grabans, Lexie Kempton, Laiken Mace, Bailey Massie, Rylee Ousley, Emily Phillips, Breanna Sexton, Sydney Smith, Lacie Williams, and Cameron Zinn. Ruckel stated the girls play well together and the future of Coach Rod Bentley's varsity basketball program looks bright.

Both the team members and the wrestlers were presented with certificates of appreciation by the board for their achievements.

Superintendent Rick Brooks noted these honorees and the Vikings varsity boys' basketball team's historic run to the Regional Tournament are all much appreciated by the board.
