MOULTRIE — Led by weight class champions Anderson Glenn and Travis Register, the Colquitt County High wrestling team took second place in the Hornet Classic in Adel on Saturday.

The Packers only had wrestlers in 10 of the 14 weight classes, but still scored 161 points, leaving Lee County in third place with 159 points and tournament host Cook in fourth with 158 1/2 points. Valdosta took first place.

“They were head-and-shoulder over everybody else,” said Colquitt County coach Travis Torbert.

“Considering what we took over there, I think we finished pretty good.”

The Packers two weight-class champions are both freshmen.

Glenn won the 119-pound weight class by winning all four of his matches by pins.

He won the title with a pin over the Cook High wrestler.

“That was a pretty big match for him,” Torbert said.

Register also went 4-0 with four pins in the 189-pound weight class.

Colquitt also got a pair of second-place finishes.

Jose Zunun went 3-1 with three pins before fall to the Valdosta wrestler in the finals in the 103-pound weight class.

Bryce Giddens also was second after winning three matches by pins and falling in the 285-pound finals.

Giddens, who was the only Packer to advance to state tournament as a freshman last year, was defeated in the finals on Saturday by a Fitzgerald wrestler.

Matthew Deal went 3-1 and finished in fifth-place in the 112-pound weight class. He had three pins.

Marquavious Clark went 4-1 with four pins and also took fifth place.

Ian Ramos went 3-2 with three pins and finished sixth at 125 pounds.

Will Burt also finished sixth after going 2-2 with two pins at 130.

Antonio Slaughter went 1-2 with one pin at 160. Blake Segers was 0-2 at 171.

The Packers do not have wrestlers at 135 or 152, although Torbert said he is counting on Ronnie Caldwell, who has just join the wrestling team after football season, to move into the 152-pound slot.

An injury forced the vacancy at 140 and Dillon Underwood was ill and unable to wrestl at 215 on Saturday.

The Packers will travel to Pelham today to take on both Pelham and Dougherty.

The Packers then will be off until Valdosta’s Wildcat Invitational, which will be held Jan. 1-2.
