Roane County High School

Raiders -- Wrestling

Roane County High School is a product of consolidation between Spencer (AA) and Walton (A) high schools in 1993. Roane County has a rich wrestling history, primarily through the years of Spencer High School. After consolidation, National Hall of Fame Coach Garry Bender and assistant Terry Kendall coached the first Raider teams until turning the program over to Wayne Jarvis and Toby Ford in 2007.

Since that time the Raiders have placed 5th in the state in 2008, 4th in 2009, and 5th in 2010. This year's team will be a mix of youth and experience. This year's Raiders have high expectations and will certainly be trying for their first state team title. Featured on the Raiders roster will be senior Josh Fisher (3X State Champ, All-American and National Champion) and junior Dylan Cottrell (2X State Champ and All-American). Also expected to highlight the Raiders will be senior Brad Hickman (2nd in state 112 in '08 and 2nd 135 in '10) and junior Sam Whiting (2nd in state 130 in '10), among others. Returning for the Raiders will be state qualifiers Steven Martin, Jacob Summers, and Luke Hottle. Also returning are Clayton Jarvis, Kyle Crihfield, and Nathan Reynolds. Newcomers are Colby Whiting, Dillon Clarkson, Trenton Lanier, Luke Scott, Matt Stone, Eli Kennedy, Briar Nichols, Sean Blosser, Shay Parrish, and Joe Copley. The Raiders wrestle a very competitive schedule and look forward to an exciting season in 2010-11.
