Former VACW placewinner Ryland Geiger featured on InterMat

Ryland Geiger kicked off his wrestling career in Chesapeake back in elementary school. Ryland’s father was moved around the world due to his job in the military and Virginia wrestling fans didn’t get to see how the career of young Geiger ended up.

Two Oregon High School state championships and a few Fargo titles later, Geiger committed to Minnesota. After a year in Minneapolis, Geiger has transferred to Clackamas Junior College back in Oregon.

What’s Geiger going to be up to? Read it here: http://intermatwrestle.com/articles/5713

Also featured in the story is a picture of three then-VACW prodigies, Jayk Cobbs, Jared King and Geiger. Along with the trio is Executive Director Frank Lipoli, who helped get the three on the mats for the first time.

VACW Blog Launched

Greetings to all wrestling fans from the Commonwealth of Virginia and around the country. Virginia Challenge Wrestling is pleased to launch a blog to keep everyone on top of things as it relates to VACW events and information.

The blog will be updated with information from VACW staff and board members, but mainly managed by the newest member of the VACW family, Cia Grant.

I’m happy to be back in the loop in helping the VACW web presence and continuing the grassroots effort that has helped raise the level of Virginia wrestling by creating and bringing national-level events to Virginia and assisting in sending out state’s best to compete in national events around the country.

Stay tuned, the rebirth is here!
