Behind state champion Elijah Kerr-Brown in the 170 weight class and second-place finisher Arius Ofum at 220, the Rome Wolves wrestling team took home seventh place with 79 points at the GHSA Class 5A State Championships at Loganville High Saturday. Cambridge won the tournament with 132 points.
Three Rome High wrestlers are two wins away from a state championship after the first day of wrestling in the Class 5A state wrestling championships at Loganville High School.
For 51 local wrestlers, the wait for the state tournament to start is almost over. The winter weather, which played havoc with the high school schedule last week, forced the Georgia High School Association to move the state wrestling tournament from Gwinnett to six different locations across the state.
