This week’s Orange Panther of the Week is senior wrestler Henry Joubert-Stanzel. Last week, Joubert-Stanzel pinned Chapel Hill’s Danny Miranda in 2:26 to wrap up a 45-22 Orange win over the Tigers. In the process, Orange captured the Big 8 Conference Championship, winning a conference title for the 17th time in the last 18 years. This season, Joubert-Stanzel is 11-0 with six pins. Since wrestling two varsity matches as a freshman, Joubert-Stanzel has showed improvement year-after-year. As a sophomore, Joubert-Stanzel went 16-22. Last year, he was 29-14 with 16 pins. Joubert-Stanzel was also a part of two Orange-Person Athletic Conference championship teams with Stanford Middle School. With no 3A State Dual Team Tournament being held this year, Joubert-Stanzel is focused on making the state tournament. The 3A Mideast Regionals will be held on June 15 at Eastern Guilford High School. As a team, Orange is 13-0 overall, 7-0 in the Big 8 Conference. On Tuesday, they will host Bartlett Yancey and Walter Williams in a tri-meet.
