Post-season is here for the Toombs County High School wrestling team as they traveled to Brantley County to compete in the Area Dual Championship on Saturday, January 7.
The MatDawgs came away from the weekend with two dual victories and an Area Championship Title. The Area Championships, hosted in Nahunta, GA, by Brantley County, is the first step of the dual post-season. The first matchup was against Pierce County, and the MatDawgs posted a 48-22 victory. The MatDawgs moved to the finals against cross-town rival Vidalia High School. The MatDawgs once again came out on top against the Indians in a tough hard fought 45-22 battle.
“We didn’t perform at our best, but at the end of the day we did what it takes to come away with the wins. These other teams came out to wrestle and we have to be ready!” says Coach Allen.
This qualifies the MatDawgs for the Sectional Duals Prelims, which Toombs will be hosting this Saturday at 12:00 p.m. at the Middle School gym. The MatDawgs will play host to three teams from other areas, Booker T. Washington, Westside-Augusta, and Banks County.
