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.

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.
