Murray County, Southeast Whitfield begin wrestling seasons

Southeast Whitfield’s wrestling team joined Murray County as the two local programs to begin their seasons Saturday, but the teams went to separate events.

Southeast competed in a six-team dual tournament at Dacula High School and finished third overall with a 3-2 record. The Raiders won 39-26 against Dacula, 43-26 versus Elbert County and 52-20 over East Paulding but lost 47-31 against Brookwood and 42-34 against area rival Heritage-Catoosa.

Noah Bartenfield won all five of his matches at the 113-pound weight class for Southeast and won two of the five matches by pinfall. Other Raiders with winning records were: Omar Ruiz (126, 5-0), Ismael Sandoval (138, 3-2); Tyler Brown (160, 4-1); Tanner Acosta (182, 3-2), Austin Allen (195, 5-0); and Garrett McClure (285, 4-1).

Southeast’s JV team also wrestled at Dacula and finished second out of six teams. Jovani Rosas (138) led the Raiders with three wins in three bouts.

n Murray County wrestled at Sequoyah against the hosts and Lithia Springs. Murray County won six of the eight matches against Sequoyah and six of 15 against Lithia Springs.

Blaine Thornbury won both his matches for the Indians in the 152-pound weight class. Austin McCall (126), Mason Cagle (138), Matthew Scott (195) and Diego Leon (220) each won their only matches for Murray County. Teams scored weren’t kept.

n Northwest Whitfield’s JV team competed against nine others at the Cherokee Scramble at Cherokee High in Canton.

Coty Carlock (126) and Noah Burns (160) each went 4-0 while Bryan Gembe (113), Kade Stephens (138), Tyler Holcomb (152), Garrett Bowen (195), Josh Dunagan (220) and Jordan Lewis (220) all finished 3-0 at the scramble.

  • Wrestler of the year 2014 2 mlh.jpg All-Area Wrestling Team and Wrestler of the Year: Winning another title was the only goal for Wheeler

    When Dalton High School wrestler Sidney Wheeler won a state title for the first time two years ago as a sophomore, he admitted he became a little complacent about what it would take to replicate the feat — perhaps not noticeably so to most observers, but enough to take success for granted. Wheeler believed it a matter of course that he would win state again, and he thought the second title would simply be the middle child in a high school three-peat.
