Boys Junior Varsity Wrestling, Boys Varsity Wrestling · LHS Wrestlers have Success at Central Carrollton

The LaGrange Granger Wrestling team won 4th place at the JC Ferrell Dual at Central Carrollton High School on Saturday. The Grangers beat the McIntosh Cheifs 39-24, stung the Calhoun Yellow Jackets 42-39 racking up 5 pins in a row during the match, demolished the Bowdon Red Devils 48-12 before losing to Tournament champions Central Carrollton Lions 24-51. In the crossover match to determine 3rd / 4th place the Grangers fell to the Mt Zion Eagles 33-42 in a hard fought match.
Hunter Brooks and Matt Callaway both won 5 matches on the day. Matt lead the way with 5 pins and Hunter had 4 pins. Grayson Whaley, Colin Cavender, Julian Santiago, and Gunner Cappinger all had 4 wins and multiple pins. Other winning Grangers were Austin Skiff, Jayden McCurty, Asa Leath, Tavarious Reed, Tayvon Howard and Devin Harris.
This 4th place victory was a remarkable accomplishment for our Wrestlers because the Grangers were giving up 5 weight classes on Saturday equating to a loss of 30 points in every dual match.
The Granger Wrestling friends and family once again made a strong showing in Carrollton supporting their team !!! – we look forward to seeing all of you again when we travel to Opelika this Tuesday for a Tri Meet. We wrestle again later this week, on Saturday, at Russell County High School where we will do battle in the Trail of Tears dual tournament.
