The Vidalia High School wrestling team continued to show why they are a force to be reckoned with in the GHSA 2AA ranks, qualifying all 11 of their wrestlers for the upcoming GHSA State Sectionals and a 2nd Place team finish at the 3AA Area Tournament in Lyons.

The Indians had five individual Champions, including Deuce Hightower (150), Jack Godbee (157), Sam Sapp (165), Jesiah Townsel (175), and Stephen Cheeks (285).

Vidalia Head Coach Bobby Blount was obviously happy with the results, saying, “I am Proud of our guys for stepping up to the challenge of qualifying the whole team. We think a lot of our kids can see themselves on the podium in 2 weeks. The hard work is starting to show.”

The following wrestlers qualified for the State Sectionals. At Sectionals the top six in each weight class move on to Macon for the State Championships. Qualifying were: 106 – Brennan Neumann – 2nd, 113 – Myikel Johnson – 3rd, 138 – Alexander Muzafarov – 4th, 144 – Jamari Jermon – 4th, 150 – Deuce Hightower – 1st, 157 – Jack Godbee – 1st, 165 – Sam Sapp – 1st, 175 – Jesiah Townsel – 1st, 190 – Ronald Pointer – 2nd, 215 – Marcus Dixon – 2nd, and 285 – Stephen Cheeks – 1st.
