George Kostis, the father of former Watauga High and current Appalachian State University wrestler Savva Kostis and current WHS wrestler Demetre Kostis, will be inducted into the Harrisonburg (Va.) High School Sports Hall of Fame this weekend in his hometown of Harrisonburg, Va.


During his high school wrestling career, George Kostis, who graduated in 1978:
He was a 2-time Virginia State Champion; during his junior year of high school, he went undefeated and he shut out every opponent he faced; he attended Appalachian State University (Class of 1983), was a member of the wrestling team and finished third in the Southern Conference Tournament twice in his career. (His son ,Savva, a rising senior, has produced a second-place finish in the Socon Tournament last season).
Savva Kostis was tied for second on the team in wins with a career-high 21; his brother Demetre was a state qualifier for WHS last season. George Kostis will be honored at halftime of Harrisonburg's football game tonight. There will be a luncheon to honor the Hall of Fame inductees on Saturday.
