The 3A Toombs County Bulldog wrestling team beat four 6A teams and one 4A in route to a second place finish in the Packer Duals in Moultrie.

TCHS knocked off 6A Colquitt Counry 48-31, 6A  Lowndes County 49-25 and 4A Crisp County 65-11 before losing to 6A Tift County 45-27. The Bulldogs wrapped up second place with a come-from-behind win over 6A Valdosta. With the Dawgs trailing by 11 points, Carson Roberts and Blaine Burkett reeled off two straight pins, each worth six points, to nip the Wildcats 39-38.

This weekend the Bulldogs will go for their third straight win in the Jacket Duals at Jeff Davis High School. The last two years the Bulldogs have beaten Ware County to finish first. Last year TCHS beat the Gators 52-26 and the year before the winning score was 52-26.
