Varsity Wrestling · Grizzlies Earn Their 2nd Consecutive State Duals Placement!!

The Grizzlies have earned 3 consecutive trips to Macon for the State Duals, with the last 2 bringing home Trophies.  The grizzlies wrestled well last weekend with the entire team contributing to the weekends 3-2 record and a 4th place trophy.  This comes after the grizzlies were hit heavy with graduation including 4 state placers from last years 3rd place team.  This season Creekview has 4 freshmen and 8 total new starters in the lineup.  Even with the young team the grizzlies have continuously improved throughout the season and worked very hard to earn their 4th place trophy.  Creekview entered the tournament as the 6th seed, they defeated Brunswick to open the tournament.  The grizzlies then defeated rival #3 seed Pope in the quarterfinals.   In the semifinals Creekview lost a very close match to #2 seed and eventual champion Valdosta.  The grizzlies then defeated Brunswick again in the consolation semifinals before losing another close match to #1 seed & defending State Champions Richmond Hill for 3rd & 4th place.  Contributing to the effort were: Josh Bledsoe, Andrew Cory, Walker Wilkie, Mason Botts, Cade Sousa, Wyatt Bonno, Willie Thang Sui Lian, Jared Wilmarth, Wyatt Higgins, Andrew Riley, Jackson Gilleland, Sam Hartley, Jake Locke, Eli Daugherty, and Avery Rocks
