Register wins region wrestling title; six Packers advance

MOULTRIE — Travis Register won the Region 1-AAAAAA wrestling championship at 220 pounds on Saturday and will lead a contingent of six Packers to this weekend’s East Sectional.

Anderson Glenn took a second-place finish at 138 pounds at the region tournament, held in Kingsland at Camden County High School.

Miguel Carranza, at 106; Hart Sumner, a 132; Hudson May, at 152; and Garrett May, at 160 all turned in fourth-place finishes.

The top four finishers in each weight at the region tournament advance to the East Sectional, which will be held on Friday and Saturday at Chattahoochee High School.

The top eight finishers in each weight class at the Sectional will move on to the state finals, to be held Feb. 14-16 at the Macon Centreplex.

Register’s region championship was his second in a row and was the first step in his quest to repeat the state championship he won a year ago.

He pinned Sam Washington of Lowndes in 3:11 in his first match on Saturday and claimed the region title with a 4-3 decision over Tift County’s Beau Bergeron. Bergeron has one of the two victories this season over Register, who will take a 25-2 to Chattahoochee.

The Packer senior’s career record is 122-18.

Glenn, the Packers all-time leader in victories, came up just short of a region championship when he fell 14-8 to Camden County’s Jason Alfau in the 138-pound finals.

After opening with a pin of Coffee’s J.T. Holton, Glenn won a 10-0 major decision over Valdosta’s Eric Brown to reach the finals. Glenn, also a senior, is 50-4 this year and 143-42 in his career.

Carranza won by pin over Coffee’s Kip McClelland; was pinned by Camden’s Devlin Ryan; won 13-5 major decision over Blake Hedgecock of Lowndes; and fell 7-4 to Brunswick’s Kameeko Hall.

Sumner dropped his first match when he was pinned by Brunswick’s Gregory Holmes, but he then pinned Tift County’s Ivory Dillard and won a 9-7 decision over Coffee’s Matt Strob.

He lost a 5-2 decision to Valdosta’s Marcus Norman in his final match.

Hudson May won by default over Valdosta’s Robert Holmes in his first match, then was pinned in 27 seconds by Matt Moody of Lowndes.

After winning a 5-1 decision over Tift County’s Jerrick Taylor, he lost a 7-2 decision to Coffee’s George Johnson.

Garrett May dropped a 7-1 decision to Landon Miley of Lowndes in his first match, then pinned Coffee’s Orlando Ingram and Tift County’s Rayder Schemmel.

He dropped his final match, a 9-4 decision, to Brunswick’s Samuel Myles.

  • 4-23.NEEDMORE.jpg Sprint cars at Needmore

    This Saturday night Needmore Speedway will host the second round of a Southern Sprint Car Showdown as sprint cars from the ASCS, Carolina Sprint Car Series will challenge drivers from the Florida Sprint Car Series. This new partnership was formed between the two series to make racing more affordable as well as more exciting for race fans. The first event in the Showdown series will kick off Friday night at Oglethorpe Speedway in Pooler, then head to Needmore for Saturday’s event. According to Carolina series director Tom Baker, this new series will pit the Florida sprints with their 360 limited motors against the smaller 305 engines in the ASCS cars. But according to Baker, both develop about the same horsepower plus the Oglethorpe track is totally different than Needmore’s 3/8s mile surface. Fans can expect to see top drivers from each series in action this Saturday night including Johnny Petrozelle, Shawn Mott and Tim Perry of the Carolina series as they take on Florida's best. Baker said ‘these drivers don't care what series label it is or what motor is in the car, these guys are the wildest, craziest drivers you'll see all year and they always put on a good show.’ Needmore's lineup this Saturday will also include Limited Late Models, Super Streets, Hobbys and Enduros. Gates open at 3 p.m. with racing at 7 p.m.

Should abortion be legal for victims of rape?

No. That baby is alive, no matter how horrible its manner of conception.
Yes. It's wrong to force a woman to carry the child of her rapist.
Abortion is a private matter and should be legal for everyone.
