Wrestlers win three of five matches in Cordele

MOULTRIE — Colquitt County wrestling performed without several of its expected contributors and still won three of five matches on Saturday in the season-opening Crisp County Cougar Duals in Cordele.

The Packers finished fourth in the 10-team field despite having several key wrestlers still on the school’s football team.

The Packers opened with a 40-29 victory over Turner County.

Jorge Martinez and Anderson Glenn each delivered pins; McCants Plymel won a major decision; and Javier Martinez, Miguel Carranza, Hunter Dauphin and Enrique Aguilar each won by forfeit.

Colquitt won its second straight with a 48-30 victory over Lee County’s B team.

The Packers got pins from Jorge Martinez, Chris Dixon, Javier Martinez, Roy Luna and Emirin Barrera.

Dauphin, Aguilar and Elijah Lumpkin each won by forfeit.

The Packers won over Bainbridge 40-39 on the tiebreaker

Glenn, Dixon, Javier Martinez, Barrera and Saul Antonio each got a pin for the Packers. Plymel won by decision and Carranza and Dauphin won by forfeit.

The Packers then fell to Rutland 42-36.

Javier Martinez, Antonio, Jorge Martinez and Glenn each had a pin. Plymel and Aguilar each won by decision and Dauphin won via forfeit.

The Packers finished 3-1 in pool play and were paired against Bainbridge to determine third and fourth place.

The Bearcats took third place with a 47-36 victory.

Glenn, Javier Martinez and Jorge Martinez each won by pin. Dixon won by default and Carranza and Dauphin won by forfeit.

Packers coach Travis Torbert was pleased with his team’s effort in the first competition of the season.

“We had a lot of kids who wrestled up in weight class because that was where they were needed,” he said. “So we put our kids in a difficult situation. But some of our freshmen won matches here and there and our veterans were fighting.

“It was just a grinding day.”

The Packers will be back in action again on Friday, November 30, when they travel to Bainbridge for a 4 p.m. match.

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.
