(Dublin, GA) — Brave wrestler Matt Brown scored a runner-up finish at the Class AA West Sectional Meet Saturday in Dublin, GA to advance to next weekend’s State Championship Tournament at the Macon Centreplex in Macon, GA.

Brown (25-12) defeated Austin Waters from Pelham High School in the quarterfinals and Levonte Bostic from Swainsboro in the semifinals of the 220-pound weight class to earn a spot in the West Sectional final late Saturday.

He won both those matches by pinfall before dropping the finals match versus Alex Garner, a Lamar County senior (5-2 decision).

The junior  was the only Brave to advance to the big stage next week and his first match will take place Friday during the 11:00 a.m.- 1:00 p.m. time slot.

In that quarterfinal tilt, Brown will face off with Rory Alston (14-35) of Greater Atlanta Christian.

The winner of that match will advance to the semi-finals at 7:00 p.m. Friday to take on the winner between Jack Walsh of Pace Academy and Chris Abraham of Screven County.

The Class AA State Championship finals match takes place at 3:00 p.m. on Saturday.

Jordan Timmons and freshman Luis Vazquez each scored sixth place finishes in Dublin Saturday.

Vazquez knocked off Sam Collins of Vidalia in round one of the heavyweight class. The Brave wrestling squad is led by Coach Kyle Yates.
