Eastside 2014 State Wrestling Champions
Eastside HS won its 10th State AAA Wrestling Championship with a convincing win over the Socastee Braves from Myrtle Beach. Although falling behind early on, the Eagle grapplers came back to win decidedly by a score of 47 to 21. It was the second championship in a row for this team and the tenth state championship for Eastside since 2000. The team was led by senior Clay Walker who pinned his Socastee opponent in an amazing twelve seconds! His brother, junior David Walker, provided the necessary momentum changer by pinning Socastee’s returning, undefeated state champion. Additionally, the Eastside wrestling machine recorded its 22nd consecutive region championship. The strong wrestling tradition was started by Coach Ed Coles in the 1990’s by winning three region championships beginning in 1993. Coach Jack Kosmicki stepped in and took the Eastside program to higher level by reeling off the next 19 consecutive region championships and all ten of the state champion teams.
