Jefferson wins 14th straight wrestling crown
LYONS, GA. February 2, 2014 ~ For the Jefferson Dragons, the chain just keeps getting stronger.
On Saturday evening at the Class AA state wrestling championships at Toombs County, the Dragons — who were without two of their top competitors, including a defending state champion, due to injury — had six individual champions and won their 14th consecutive traditional state championship.
Jefferson finished with 193 points, besting Bremen, which had 156 points. Social Circle finished third and Toombs County was fourth.
Tyler Marinelli led the way for Jefferson, winning the state crown at 138 pounds to collect his third state championship and finish the season undefeated. Chase Piperato earned his second state crown, winning 3-2 at 126.
Other state champions included Price Joiner (113 pounds), Jack Dollar (145), Bam Little (160) and Michael Paolozzi (220). Dollar’s victory clinched the championship for the Dragons, coached by Doug Thurmond.
Tanner Thurmond (132) and Zack Boobas (152) both finished second in their respective weight divisions. Zach Rhymer finished third at 170 and Deshean Lester earned a fourth-place finish at 195.
Earlier this year, the Dragons won their 13th consecutive state duals championship.
