Tournament Re-Cap of Dragon Duals @ Pepperell HS

 

We had some solid individual performances this weekend at Pepperell and some great, tough matches that will help to prepare our guys for later on in the year, despite having a 1-4 dual match record this weekend.  We forfeited 4 weight classes every match, giving up 24 points to our opponents, and due to injury we forfeited 5 matches the last 2 matches, giving up 30 points to our opponents.  It is definitely hard to win duals when you are giving away that many points, but the wrestlers who were there fought hard and we were still able to win 1 dual despite the odds being stacked against us.

Scoring the most points for the team was Tyler Earick with 27 points scored for the team and a 5-0 record.  There was a 3-way tie for second most points scored for the team with 24 points between Giles Turner (5-0), Jabril Williams (4-1), and Shadre Hurst (4-1).  Joshua Alvarez and Cameron Perry both scored 18 points for the team and had a 3-2 record for the day.  Mohammed Karim (2-3) and Diego Lopez (2-1) scored 12 points for the day and Brady Jenkins scored 6 points for the team.  Thanks to everyone that attended the event in support of our Canes Wrestling Team!!!

 

Tournament Re-Cap of the JV Blue-Devil Invitational @ Marietta HS

Several of our JV Wrestlers competed at the JV Blue Devil Invitational at Marietta HS on Friday and Saturday this past weekend.  Congratulations to Chris Lopez for finishing the highest out of all of the JV Competitors from Cartersville HS!!!  The JV Team got some good experience and mat time against other JV wrestlers which will help to develop them for the future.

Saturday 12/15/2018

  • Varsity @ Wolfpack Duals @ North Paulding HS
  • Junior Varsity @ Wolfpack Scramble @ North Paulding HS
    • Directions to North Paulding HS
    • The Varsity and JV will BOTH be at North Paulding HS this Saturday.  Both Teams will meet at the Storm Center at 6:30 AM.  The bus will leave heading to North Paulding at 6:45 AM.  Weigh-Ins begin at 7:00 AM.  Wrestling will begin at 9:00 AM.  The wrestlers participating in the JV Scramble will not be able to participate with the Varsity Team in the Duals tournament.  I will let the wrestlers know by Wednesday who will be wrestling Varsity and JV after the wrestle-offs are completed this week.  I did not get a schedule from the North Paulding Coach as of yet, but I would expect us to wrestle until around 6:00 PM.  I will have the wrestlers call/text once we have a definite leave time from the tournament.
    • If there are any parents of the Varsity/JV Team that would like to send fruit (oranges/cuties/bananas), bread/jelly for sandwiches, and cereal/granola bars for the team to eat, that would be great.  We have peanut butter and cases of water with a cooler already.  If they would like to pack their own lunch, that would be fine, or they can bring money to eat from the concession stands as well.
  • Women’s Team @ Panther Challenge @ Jackson Co. HS
    • Directions to Jackson Co. HS
    • The Women’s Team will be at Jackson Co. HS wrestling in their first Women’s Tournament.  Women’s Team will meet at Storm Center @ 6:30 AM.  Bus will leave for Jackson Co. HS @ 6:45 AM.  Coaches Meeting will be at 8:30 AM.  Wrestling will begin at 9:00 AM.  We do not have an estimated time of completion yet, as we do not know how many women’s teams will be there.  The Women’s tournament is round robin style so they will get to wrestle all the girls at their weight class that show up to the tournament (up to the 5-match limit).  We will have the Women’s Team call/text their parents to let them know an estimated time of arrival on the way back home.  The trip is 90 minutes, so parents will have at least that long of a head’s up on ETA for returning to Storm Center.
    • If there are any parents of the Women’s Team that would like to send fruit (oranges/cuties/bananas), bread/jelly for sandwiches, and cereal/granola bars for the team to eat, that would be great.  We have peanut butter and cases of water with a cooler already.  If they would like to pack their own lunch, that would be fine, or they can bring money to eat from the concession stands as well.
