Tournament Re-Cap of Wolfpack Duals @ North Paulding HS

Highlight Clip from Wolfpack Duals @ North Paulding HS

The Wolfpack Duals at North Paulding was a good tournament for us at this point in the season.  We finished the tournament with 2 wins and 2 losses, but it was a good experience for us as a Duals Team.  We lost to last year’s AAA State Duals 3rd Place finisher: Sonoraville and last year’s AA State Duals 4th Place finisher: Rockmart, but we defeated Haralson County and Calhoun.  I was especially proud of the team effort to defeat Calhoun.  We had several of our better wrestlers lose some really close matches that could’ve gone either way.  The match came down to the last match at Heavyweight with the Team Dual score tied at 33-33.  Collin Buffaloe, usually our 220 lbs. wrestler, wrestled up to heavyweight and pinned his opponent to secure the victory at 39-33.  It was a fun match to wrestle in and the type of match we are going to need to win in a few weeks at the Region 5-AAAA Duals Championship if we are to reach one of our goal this year of qualifying for the State Duals Championship Tournament.  We will build off of this match and continue working towards that goal this week in practice and give it another shot next Saturday, 12/22/2018 at the Trojan Duals @ Lassiter HS.

Scoring the most team points this week was Jabril W with 24.  Tied for 2nd Most Team Points this weekend was Tyler E and Collin B with 15.  Tied for 3rd Most Team Points was Eoin N, Kentrel F, and Edwin B with 12 points.  All team members contributed to the team wins this weekend…some may have scored points for the team, others may have fought hard to not give up bonus points to the other team, which also helps us to win dual matches!!!  I am very proud of everyone’s effort this weekend.  Let’s keep working hard this week to get closer to achieving our goals!!!


Tournament Re-Cap of JV Wolfpack Scramble @ North Paulding HS

The JV Wolfpack Scramble @ North Paulding HS is the first time we’ve seen many of our football players in action on the wrestling mat this year.  Some of those football players started wrestling on their first day off after football, and others won’t be joining the team until this week for practice.  Undefeated Hurricane Wrestlers at the JV Wolfpack Scramble: Edwin B (4-0), Earl H (2-0), Rashad H (1-0), Zafna A (1-0), Francisco O (1-1), Juan B (1-0), and Camden M (1-0).  Jeffery (1-2), Phillip R (2-1), and Tytan G (3-1) also won matches at this event.  We are excited to watch the JV wrestlers develop and with some of them dropping weight classes and football players eligible to challenge for Varsity this week, some of them may be joining the Varsity Line-Up soon.  Keep working hard guys!!!






Tournament Re-Cap of Lady Panther Invitational @ Jackson County HS

The CHS Women’s Team participated in the Lady Panther Invitational @ Jackson County HS this weekend.  This was the first Women’s Only Traditional Tournament in CHS Wrestling History!!!  Competing in the 10-team-tournament against Alexander, Apalachee, Clark Central, Franklin Co., Hart Co., Hiram, Jackson Co., New Manchester, and Oglethorpe Co., the Lady Canes were able to finish 6th Place with 3 placers: Riley P (136 lbs-3rd Place), Aisia S (146 lbs-3rd Place), and Gabby W (156 lbs-3rd place).  Also representing Cartersville at this event was Elora W, Raven W, and Destiny S.  We are proud of the the performance of our Women’s Team in their inaugural season so far and excited to see where will go in the future.


Tournament Re-Cap of MS Panther Clash @ Jackson County HS

We were able to get a late entry into the MS Panther Clash for our Middle School Wrestling Team, thanks to Coach Poe’s quick thinking!!!  The Middle School team received a trophy for finishing 3rd in the 12-team tournament.  Team Results: West Jackson (1st Place-211.5 pts.), Oglethorpe Co. (2nd Place-203 pts.), Cartersville (3rd-172 pts.), Commerce (171.5 pts), Social Circle (149.5 pts), Hart Co., Banks Co., Franklin Co., Clarke Central, East Jackson, Apalachee, and Athens Academy.  Individual Placers for the Canes were: Eaiden Neal (1st Place-76 lbs.), Hayden Santora (1st Place-81 lbs), McCaiden Reece (1st Place-131 lbs), Keylan McCarty (1st Place-286 lbs), Lee Camp (2nd Place-76 lbs), Delroy Hurst (3rd Place-191 lbs), Talan Nix (4th Place-91 lbs), Caiden Tanner (4th Place-96 lbs), Kenrich Johnson (4th Place-172 lbs), and Johnathan Cline (4th Place-221 lbs).


Volunteer of the Week

Thank you to Mr. and Mrs. Heath Neal for providing the Varsity and Junior Varsity’s match day food for the Wolfpack Duals and JV Wolfpack Scramble Tournaments at North Paulding HS.  It is a lot having that many wrestlers with us at one location, and knowing that they were all able to eat is a HUGE help to the team!!!

    • If there are any parents of the Varsity 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.  They have asked us not to bring in any coolers, but we will keep the food/drinks available on our bus for the team.
