Wheeler, Pope Wrestling Reach State Duals

The competition begins Thursday in Macon.

Wheeler, Pope Wrestling Reach State Duals

The Pope High School wrestling team cruised to the Region 7-AAAAA duals championship.

As expected.

The Wheeler High School wrestling team finished second in the Region 5-AAAAAA meet over the weekend.

Unexpected.

For the first time in school history, the Wildcats qualified for the Georgia High School Association state duals wrestling tournament, slated for Thursday-Saturday in Macon.

After winning their first state duals title last year, the Pope Greyhounds are favored to repeat.

In Thursday's first round, Wheeler will meet Alcovy of Newton County. In Class AAAAA, Pope, the overall No. 1 seed, faces Hardaway of Columbus.

Also representing Cobb with Wheeler in the Class AAAAAA event are Kennesaw Mountain and Marietta.
