Pizza may have cost state champ a big match Published: January 31, 2014

This might be the only time a high school kid has ever regretted eating pizza, according to Yahoo Sports.

A nearly unbeatable defending Virginia state champion prep wrestler lost for only the fifth time in his last 95 matches because he began wolfing down a celebratory spread before realizing he still had one match remaining at this weekend's Viking Duals.

“I was two pieces of pizza deep, a sandwich, and a bowl of white chicken chili,” Ashburn (Va.) Briar Woods senior wrestler Michael Hulcher said, recounting his indigestion-related defeat to The Washington Post. "Coach (Ryan Rogers) comes over and says, ‘You have one more match, it’s the kid from West Virginia, and he’s a stud.'"
