The Grundy Wrestling Club was formed in 1983 to provide an opportunity to succeed to the wrestlers of Buchanan County. 2X NCAA All American Travis Fiser is Head Coach. Grundy’s practice facility is better than most college teams. Grundy wrestles a schedule that will expose our wrestlers to college coaches, nationally ranked wrestlers, and life outside of Buchanan County. During this season, the team will travel as far west as Reno NV, as far east as Hampton VA, and as far north as Union Ky. Grundy has a strong wrestling background. Grundy holds state records for most consecutive team titles (12), most team point at state (327.5), and second most team titles (15). Grundy holds 2 national records highest score in a quad and the other Luke Owens tied the fastest pin for a heavyweight (4 seconds). Grundy has produced two 4X state champs, seven 3X state champs, twelve 2X state champs, 89 state champs, 235 state place winners, 14 Cadet/Junior All Americans, and 2 Cadet/Junior national champs. Grundy has had 7 nationally ranked teams. The highest national ranking was 2nd pre season (1998) and 4th final season (1992). In 2001 Grundy won the Virginia Duals. Grundy has been recognized by the State Senate 9 times. Grundy also boasts a strong middle school program. The middle school wrestlers are treated to similar opportunities as the varsity. They wrestle around the state as well as in Oklahoma, New Jersey, and Ohio. This has helped the middle school in producing 9 VAC state champs and 85 state place winners. The middle school team won the VAC State becoming the first AA team to win the tournament.
Grundy returns 7 state placewinners and 4 have been state finalists. Sean VanDyke, Cody Rife and Tyler McClanahan all were in the AA state finals this season as was Jeremy Hurley in '08 while Justin Street, Dakota Vance, and Tanner McClanahan were all top four placewinners. Also returning this season is State qualifier Austin Compton and Region Qualifiers Anthony Potter, Daniel Lowe, Jake McCowan, and Dalton Cox. New faces on the varsity squad this year may also include Tanner Marshall, Ryan Stiltner, Channing Elswick, Joey Ratliff, Milo Mullins, and exceptional incoming freshmen in Trey Smith, Dylan Raines, Austin Hurley, Daniel Honaker and Brian Potter. This is the most seasoned team Grundy has put on the mat in years.
