The So­cial Cir­cle High School wrestling team con­tin­ued its streak of vic­to­ries at the Gran­ite City Du­als in El­ber­ton, ex­tend­ing its team record to 13-1.

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

So­cial Cir­cle and Bre­men fin­ished first and sec­ond, re­spec­tively, while El­bert County, Jack­son County, Ch­es­ta­tee, Mor­gan County, Madi­son County, Cross Creek and Ge­orge Wal­ton Academy rounded out the tour­na­ment’s fin­ish­ers.

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.”

In­di­vid­ual wins came from 20 dif­fer­ent Red­skins, in­clud­ing 106 Josh Craig, 113 Trey Paschal, 120 Ste­vie Howard, 126 Mitchel Clegg, 132 Ryan Davis, 132 Daw­son Queen, 138 Cade Lackey, 138 A.J. Howard, 145 David Engstrom, 145 Chase Stevens, 152 Aaron For­rester, 152 Ja­cob Noth, 160 Justin Givens, 160 Josh Tyson, 170 Jeremy Tyson, 182 Ryan Davis, 195 Jimmy Haynes, 220 Tevin Burke, 220 Luke Hamby, 285 Eric Wil­son and 285 Joseph Eidi­son.

The tour­na­ment vic­tory was the fourth for the Red­skins this sea­son. So­cial Cir­cle has placed first in all but one tour­na­ment this sea­son af­ter fin­ish­ing third over­all at the Parkview Tour­na­ment ear­lier this year.

The Red­skins re­turn to ac­tion to­day at the Area 4 Class AA Du­als hosted by Jef­fer­son.
