Lookout Valley HS Wrestling is Back

Troy Walliser is new head coach

Tuesday, November 5, 2013 - by B.B. Branton

Good news for Chattanooga area prep wrestling and all of Tennessee as Lookout Valley High School will field a wrestling team this winter after a three-year hiatus.

Lookout Valley Baptist Church pastor Troy Walliser is the high school coach and former head coach Bill Ward will oversee the middle school program.

"To have wrestling back at Lookout Valley High School is great for the sport and the school as this gives our student-athletes another sport in which to compete," said Walliser who wrestled in high school in Florida.

The LV wrestlers practice daily at Chattanooga Christian to help increase practice partners for both programs.

Coach Walliser is working to complete the team schedule which will include competing in the CCS tournament Dec. 20-21.

The CCS tournament was first formed at City High School by coach Ward and then became the Yellow Jacket Classic when he became a teacher at Lookout Valley. CCS and head coach Josh Craft moved the tournament to CCS for the 2010-11 season.
