Three Time State Champion

Entering the 2017-18 VHSL State Wrestling tournament Galax Junior Joshua Spurlin was 97-15 and ready for the task. It was daunting with what was arguably the toughest weight class in the tournament. With another returning champion and one runner-up standing in his way Spurlin was prepared for the battles that ensued. Spurlin met last years runner up in the semi finals and with 3 seconds on the clock scored an escape to win the match 1-0. The finals were set.  Two returning state champions would battle it out to see who would be the best for 2018.  With Spurlin down 2-4 and only 6 seconds remaining in the match, the Galax junior scored a huge takedown to tie the match, forcing overtime.  In overtime Spurlin prevailed with a dramatic takedown to the mat and a pin to take the 1A VHSL 132lb State Championship and notching his 100th career win! Congratuations to Joshua Spurlin on the Championship and his 100th win!

Roll Tide! Your 3x VHSL State Champ Joshua Spurlin!
