He, to me, is the perfect representation of a true Wrestler. Alec Baynard has worked for years to become the best wrestler he can be, and that has meant that he is the best wrestler in the region. The accomplishments that Alec has had over the years include:
- 170 Career Wins (WHHS Record)
- Senior year 3-A Runner-up at State Championship
- Record of 48-5 his Senior Year. Let me say that again: 48 wins!!!
- Numerous weekend tournament wins outside of school wrestling
In addition to his individual wins, Alec’s leadership and skills contributed to West Henderson’s best season in years, winning the Conference Championship and advancing in the State Duels this season.
West Henderson has had some incredible wrestlers over the years, but Alec has been the best of these. His 170 wins hold the record for the school, and anyone who has watched him on the mat will understand why.
It is awesome that he is going to move to the next level in Charlotte at Queens University. Queens is gaining a top performer as well as a genuinely nice young man. Alec, I wish you the very best as you continue your career!!
