Gordon Central traveled to Armuchee on Saturday to compete in the Area 3-AA Traditional Tournament and had solid performances from several wrestlers.
The Warriors had nine wrestlers place in the top six in their individual weight classes with four of those taking a top-four spot to move on to sectionals. Shane Davis (120) and Ethan Mitchell (220) each took third, and Augustis Gordon (113) and Christian Davis (120) both finished fourth. Those four will compete at Class AA B Sectionals at Rockmart High this Saturday.
Branson Towe (182) and Fernando Martinez (106) each took fifth, and Erasmo Tamaro (138), Braxton Caldwell (145) and Trent Dutton (182) all finished sixth. The Warriors finished seventh in the team standings with 121 points.
“We’re super proud of each and every one of our Gordon Central wrestlers this season,” said coach Cory Nix. “We are proud of each Warrior that competed today, and this is the beginning of a culture change for the wrestling program.”
