Prep Wrestling

The Carrollton High School wrestling team delivered a 4-1 showing at the Calhoun Duals on Saturday to finish second overall in the 10-team event.

The Trojans defeated Pepperell (58-24), Lafayette (43-42), Fannin County (45-24) and LFO (54-15) before falling to Sonoraville in the finals by a 57-17 count.

"We wrestled with a lineup that had 11 wrestlers all day long. Although we were short-handed, the guys that we had got a lot better," Carrollton head coach Michael Cleek said. "Good, hard-nosed kids that worked all through the holiday break for us. I'm real proud of them."

Kaleb Thomaston (145 lbs.), Jacob Walsingham (152) and Grant McKinley (170) all went 5-0 on the day for the Trojans, who return to action on Jan. 6 in the Area 7-AAAAA Duals at Hiram.
