There is a part of Allen Jenerette that wishes he could get right back on the wrestling mat and get back to the business of winning.That is how bad the taste in his mouth has been after having lost in the 220-pound finals of the 4A state individual wrestling championship held in February. But the Lugoff-Elgin senior still has a few months of waiting ahead of him before he can wrestle again after having a signed a national letter-of-intent with Spartanburg Methodist College.“I’m ready to get back on the mat because my last match was a loss,” he said, moments after his signing ceremony. “I’m just ready to get it going and see where it goes.”A two-sport standout at L-E, Jenerette fashioned a 46-4 record as a senior for Evan Moxie’s Region 4-4A champions.
