Camden County captured its third-straight traditional state title and first Class 7A championship by scoring 259 points. Half of the Wildcats’ 14 state qualifiers walked away with individual state titles, including Sangobunmi Smith (170 pounds) and Antonio Stewart (195 pounds), who finished their seasons with perfect 42-0 records. Nicholas Krug (106), Tyler Crew (113), Brandon Orum (120), Raydan Wilder (138) and Denton Spencer (145) were Camden County’s other five individual state champs.

In Class 6A, Alexander completed its first sweep of wrestling state titles by outscoring second-place South Paulding 140.5 to 114.5. The Cougars scored valuable points with third-place finishes by London Dubroc (113), Little Nelson (145) and Deandre Burton (152) and a second-place finish by Spencer Meyers at 285 pounds.

Buford dominated the Class 5A field with 243.5 points, while Union Grove and Woodland-Cartersville each tallied 160. Logan Ashton (106), Nick Stonecheck (126), Charlie Darracott (138), Trent Ferguson (152) and Jack Ness (195) gave the Wolves five individual state champs on their run to Buford’s first traditional title since 2014.

In Class 4A, Jefferson edged Gilmer 166.5-to-142.5 to take home the program’s 17th straight traditional wrestling title. Bates Dawson (132) was the Dragons’ lone individual state champion, while second-place finishes by Nick Holman (220), Caleb Little (182), Mason Corbett (160) and Ian Statia (126) were enough for Jefferson to prevail.

Bremen captured its first traditional state title since the program’s run of four consecutive state championships from 2009-12. The Blue Devils edged the Class 3A field with 132.5 points, while second-place Sonoraville finished with 105. Senior Drew Cook (160), junior Noah Liles (170) and Paul Robinson (285) gave Bremen three individual state champs.

Social Circle brought home its third-straight Class 2A state title with a 160-point effort, while Elbert County took second-place with 136 points. Josh Engstrom (132), Douglas Peppers (145) and Cade Lackey (160) gave the Redskins a trio of individual champs.

In Class A, Commerce (238.5) won its fourth-straight traditional title, easily outclassing second-place Trion (98.0) and third-place Wesleyan (89.0). Dalton Flint (138), Jake Brewer (145), Owen Brown (160), Chase Forrester (170), Mitchell Patton (182), Cole Chancey (195) and Cade Ridley (285) matched 7A’s Camden County with seven individual state champs.
