Johnathan De La Cruz has been a crucial part of the Cartersville Wrestling Program during the 2015-2016 season. Johnathan attended a week-long camp in Ohio with Jeff Jordan to improve his wrestling skills. Once back in school, he began working with the Coaches in pre-season conditioning/strength workouts in August all the way to the season’s start at the end of October. Johnathan has not missed any practices or events all year. His hard work and dedication have paid off. Johnathan has earned a record of 35 wins – 18 losses, with 16 victories by pinning his opponent. He finished 3rd at the Region 7-AAAA Traditional Tournament at the 220 lbs. weight class, qualifying him for the Sectional Tournament. Just this past weekend, Jonathan finished 6th in the Sectional Tournament, which qualifies him for the GHSA AAAA State Championship Tournament that will be held February 11, 2016-February 13, 2016. This is quite an accomplishment for just a Sophomore! The Wrestling Coaches (Garvin Edwards, Brooks Gayton, Tim Heath, Rick Poe, and Tyler Putnam) are very proud of Johnathan’s achievements so far this year and wish him the best of luck at State! Congratulation Johnathan De La Cruz, Alfa Insurance Athlete of the Week for February 10, 2016!!!
