Register, May twins help lead wrestling team to two wins

MOULTRIE —  The Colquitt County wrestling team got three members of the Packers football team on the mats on Thursday and they helped lead the Packers to victories over Pelham and Cook at the Pineland gymnasium.

Colquitt had little trouble with Pelham, winning 71-12. The Packers eased by Cook 39-36.

Less than a week after playing in the Class AAAAAA state semifinal football game, defending state 220-pound champion Travis Register won by pin and default in his two matches.

And twins Garrett May and Hudson May contributed as well with Garrett winning by pin and a 10-4 decision and Hudson winning by a technical fall and a 6-5 decision.

“Those guys improve us tremendously,” said Packers coach Travis Torbert, who will take his team to Ashburn today to begin competition in the two-day Turner County Rebel Invitational.

Register got his feet wet on Thursday winning twice, but will not compete in Ashburn.

Torbert hopes to have his state champion ready for the Union Grove Holiday Duals in McDonough on December 21-22.

“It will probably take him until February to really be in wrestling shape,” Torbert said. “But I’m not worried about him.”

Garrett May wrestled at 170 pounds, although he is about 160.

“I knew he could handle it,” Torbert said, adding that the Cook wrestler he defeated had won the weight class in the recent Cook Invitational.

Hudson was the heavier of the twins last year, but Torbert said Garrett is heavier now. He is unsure which weight classes they will settle in this season.

Also winning for the Packers were McCants Plymel, who had a pin against Pelham; Javier Martinez, who had a pin and a 4-2 decision; Enrique Aguilar, who had a pin against Cook; Jorge Martinez, who had a pin against Pelham; Anderson Glenn, who had a pin against Pelham at 138 pounds and a pin against Cook at 145 pounds; and Hart Sumner who won a 14-3 major decision at 145 pounds against Pelham.

Torbert said several of his newest wrestlers are “coming around.”

“They are doing some impressive things,” Torbert said. “But we are still looking for a heavyweight.”

Should the U.S. negotiate with groups it considers terrorists?

No. Never.
Generally no, but prisoner exchanges are an exception.
Negotiation will be required to end the conflicts we have with those groups.
