Braves wrestle to best all-time finish at region meet

2011-2012 Braves Wrestling Team 3rd Place Region 5-AA

The Braves wrestling team led by first year coach Justin Ransom captured the third place trophy at last weekend’s Region 5-AA wrestling meet at Callaway High School in Lagrange.

Twelve Brave wrestlers finished in fourth place or higher to qualify for this weekend’s sectionals which are being held at Blessed Trinity High School in Roswell.

Sixteen wrestlers will compete in each weight class and the top eight will qualify for the GHSA State Championships at the Gwinnett Arena February 16-18.

Blake Hardy, Tyler Wynn, Ta Freeland, and Hank Barnes all brought home first place area championship medals. Finishing in second place were Tori Rogers and Ronnie Warren.

Bill Singleton, Taron Person, and James Sprayberry took third place while Dresden Thornton, Austin Yates, and Jordan Timmons each won fourth.

They will each look to continue their respective seasons at Blessed Trinity this weekend with hopes of landing a spot at the State Championships. The third place finish was tops in young history of the wrestling program.
