The Redskins went 4-0 at the event, defeating Bremen in the event’s champi- onship final.

The Redskins posted wins over Cross Creek High School 76-3, Morgan County 53-12, Elbert County 54-25 and Bremen 37-24.
“Beating Bremen is huge for Social Circle, whether it was in 1A or 2A, Bremen is always in the hunt for the state championship,” Social Circle head coach Randy Prater said. “The seniors and juniors on our team have lost to Bremen in the last two years at the GHSA Team State tournament, so this was a very sweet victory. I am very proud about how we wrestled, but we still have some things we need to work on before Area.”
