The Gordon Lee Trojans didn't challenge their NGAC tournament points record that they set last year, but six individual champions and 228.5 points were more than enough to pick up their third straight conference title on Saturday at Heritage Middle School.

It's the program's sixth NGAC tournament championship since 2005.

Trion had two champions and finished with 158 points to earn the runner-up trophy. Ringgold (one champion) was third with 133 points, while LaFayette (zero champions) collected 89.5 points to claim fourth, edging out Heritage (zero champions, 88 points) who took fifth.

Lakeview, with three champions, was sixth with 74 points, followed by Dade County (one champion, 72 points), Saddle Ridge (one champion, 71.5 points), Rossville (one champion, 68 points) and Chattanooga Valley (zero champions, 43 points).

Bryce James (86 points) and Penn Askew (94) got things going for the Trojans in the championship finals, before Cade Peterson (108), Garrison Dendy (123) and Logan Butler (130) followed up with titles a short time later. Dylan Burnett (275) closed it out in the day's final match.

Trion's individual winners were Crawford Lee (72) and Ty Veatch (140). Ringgold's champion was Justin Middlebrooks (165). Dade County got a win from Cody Williams (115), while Lakeview had champions in Ryan Tisdale (78), Jacob Brown (150) and Julian Waters (180).

Avery Sullivan (100) won a title for Saddle Ridge, while Tommy Lamb (220) won for Rossville.

Dendy and Brown were named the tournament's Most Outstanding Wrestlers.

Gordon Lee won the NGAC Duals championship in Trion last Saturday.
