The grappling Greyhounds went 5-2 in a Thanksgiving tournament in Norcross last week, downing Central Forsyth 42-40, East Paulding 53-24, Duluth 51-33, Mt. Vernon 51-27 and St. Francis 42-24. They lost to Villa Rica 41-39 and host Norcross 39-33.

“We did pretty well. We were missing a couple of guys, Darrell-Lee Duggan (170 pounds) and Jequelle Griffin (145), but some other guys wrestled well. Seth Killgo (145) and Daniel Curry (195) were probably our best two up there,” coach Jacob Crook said.

Killgo, who moved up from 138 pounds, was 6-1 with five pins in his seven matches, and Curry was also 6-1 with five pins, as was Scott Rooks at 220 pounds.

Senior Tim Randolph (126) was 6-1 with three pins but lost his first match of the season when he was pinned by his foe from Villa Rica.

“He said he wasn’t feeling well, and he didn’t wrestle as well as usual, but he still was good enough to win all but the one match,” Crook said.

“We’re 12-3 now, which is good, but we haven’t wrestled a lot of tough teams yet,” he added. “There were a couple of good teams up at Norcross. That’s why we went up there, we thought it would be some tough competition, but it wasn’t as hard as we expected. Hopefully by the end of the month we’ll be in better shape, have some guys back who have been out and we’ll be ready to do well in area and state.”
