Another year, another example of Bartow County’s wrestling proficiency.

Bartow was the home of five state champs in the 2017-18 high school wrestling season, 14 state placers and 26 state qualifiers across the four county schools.

195 — Jonathan De La Cruz, Cartersville

De La Cruz actually competed in the 182-pound weight class after wrestling at 220 as a junior. Cartersville head coach Garvin Edwards credited De La Cruz for his diligence in losing weight the “right way” in order to compete at 182, freeing up weight classes to get some of Cartersville’s other top wrestlers in the lineup, like Desmond Winters.

Regardless of the weight class, De La Cruz was the best and most consistent wrestler for the Canes all year. He was their top placer at each event, and placed fourth at the state traditional tournament after finishing sixth the year before.

He is a two-time area champ, and will be signing to Life University on Friday.
