Glenn sets school record, wins weight class in BDI

MOULTRIE —  With his pin of Coffee’s John Holton in his first match in the Tift County Blue Devil Invitational on Saturday, Colquitt County’s Anderson Glenn set the school record for wins.

And he didn’t stop there. Glenn won his next two matches and claimed the 138-pound championship.

The Packers’ Travis Register won the 220-pound championship, but the Packers could do no better than eighth-place in the tournament.

The pin of Holton was the 133rd career win for Glenn, and with a 10-1 major decision Lee County’s Britt Butler and a pin of Trenton Miller on Niceville, Fla., Glenn now has 135 career wins.

He broke the record of 132 previously held by Jose Zunun.

The pin of Miller was Glenn’s 42nd win this season, which ties the school record.

He can set a new record when Colquitt plays host to Bainbridge and Crisp County at 5 p.m. Thursday at the Pineland gymnasium.

Register also won all three of his matches in Tifton on Saturday, raising his season record to 19-1 with 14 pins.

He, too, has an enviable career record, which is now 116-17.

Register pinned Cairo’s Koby Pryz and Irwin County’s Taylor Hughes and won a 7-4 decision over Tift County’s Beau Bergeron.

Register’s only loss of the last two season came at the hands of Bergeron by a 13-11 score on Jan. 5.

Also for the Packers on Saturday, Miguel Carranze won 1-of-3 matches at 106 to finish fourth; Jordan Rosales won 1-of-3 at 113 and finished fourth; and Javier Martinez was 1-2 and also finished fourth.

McCants Plymel went 2-2 at 152 pounds, pinning Cairo’s Darby Nichols and winning a 5-3 decision of Tift County Rayden Schemmel.

The Packers also wrestled last Friday at the Pineland gymnasium, falling to Chiles High of Tallahassee 33-30 and winning over Thomas County Central 46-34.

Against Chiles, Carranza won a 7-4 decision; Rosales won by forfeit; Jorge Martinez won an 8-3 decision at 132 pounds; Hart Sumner won by forfeit at 138; Glenn won by pin at 145; Plymel won 5-1 at 152; and Register won 6-2 at 220 pounds.

In the victory over the Yellow Jackets, Rosales won by pin over Noah Hobbs; Enrique Aguilar won by pin at 120 over Jordan Hurst; Jorge Martinez won by pin over Josh Brue; Glenn pinned Jeremy Belle; Sumner won a 10-2 decision over Hudson Prevatt; Plymel pinned Evan Watson; Javier Martinez pinned Josh Dorsey; and Register pinned Neil Williams.

The Packers are now 18-11 in dual meets.

  • 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.
