JEFF HURNDON

It was sweet revenge for the Alexander Cougars wrestling team.

The Cougars captured the Class AAAAAA Dual Championship with a 37-38 win over area rival South Paulding at the Macon Centreplex.

Only five days earlier, South Paulding defeated Douglas County in the Area 5-AAAAAA Championship in Newnan.

Both teams advanced to the state meet and proceeded on a course to meet for the championship. It was the program’s first duals state title. However, the Cougars would not stop with just one state title.

A few weeks later, Alexander returned to Macon and won the second traditional title in program history.

The only other one was in 2010.

Spencer Myers was the highest individual placer for the Cougars as he was runner-up in the heavyweight division at state.

Also placing for the Cougars were London Dubroc, Vinnie Ferrara, Little Nelson, Deandre Burton, Cole Driskell and Conner Perry.
