John Paul II’s Peter Torinese

JPII’s Peter Torinese captures 2nd state title 


After falling just short a year ago, John Paul II’s Peter Torinese made it back to the mountaintop. 

Torinese capped off his terrific high school wrestling career with his second SCISA state title, winning the 132-pound championship. He also won a 113-pound title as a freshman and finished runner-up at 132 last season. 

The Golden Warriors finished fifth in the team standings with a total of five placers, as senior Kohl Woodham finished runner-up at 182, Daniel Snyder (120) and Jack Brock (152) placed third, and Jude Witkowski was fourth at 113. 

Eagles fall in Lower State semifinals 

After pulling off two road wins to open the Class 3A wrestling playoffs, Beaufort High couldn’t muster another, falling 53-29 at Aynor in the Lower State semifinals. The Bluejackets advanced to the finals before falling to West-Oak. 

Ryli Corbin (106), Tayriq Legree (113), Jack Miller (138), and Andrew Legree (152) all earned pins for the Eagles, and Colton Phares (182) won by technical fall. 

Beaufort finishes the dual season with an 18-6 record and will compete in the Lower State individual qualifier Friday and Saturday at Dreher High School along with Battery Creek.
