Self-Discipline

Coach Lloyd Page has revamped Nottoway’s youth wrestling program and this year has 44 boy and girl grapplers, ranging in grades from PreK-6th grade.

Last Wednesday night at Crewe Primary, Coach Page, who’s also principal of the school, and fellow Coach Lucas Jackson hosted a scrimmage with Appomattox. “Everybody had a blast and enjoyed their first competition outside the practice wrestling room,” said Page.

Each team practices twice a week in the high school wrestling room. “Over the next couple of months, we’ll wrestle each other a couple times, invite other youth programs to wrestle like we did last week, and also go to some Saturday tournaments,” said Coach Page.
