GHSA sets sites for state wrestling tourney

The Georgia High School Association has announced new locations for the Traditional Wrestling State Championships.

Originally scheduled to be completed today at The Arena at the Gwinnett Center for all classifications, the tournament was postponed due to the winter storms that wiped school out across the entire northern part of the state and throughout much of metro Atlanta. Now, tournaments for each class will be held at separate locations throughout the state.

The Class 2A tournament, which will feature wrestlers from Murray County and Morris Innovative, will be held on Feb. 22 at Toombs County High in the middle Georgia city of Lyons. The Class 3A tournament — which will include Coahulla Creek — will be held on Feb. 22 at Buford in Gwinnett County. Class 4A, featuring wrestlers from Dalton, Northwest Whitfield and Southeast Whitfield, will be held Feb. 21-22 at West Laurens High in the middle Georgia town of Dexter.

All of the championship wrestling finals will be carried live on NFHSNetwork.com/GHSA (subscription rates apply). Comcast Sports Southeast will broadcast a two-hour “highlight show” of the Wrestling State Championships on Feb. 23 from 6 to 8 p.m.; Feb. 24 from 9 to 11 p.m.; and March 1 from noon to 2 p.m.
