Jefferson Does It Again
On January 14th, the Jefferson Dragon wrestling team won the state duals for the 16th consecutive time. This broke the Gilmer Bobcats 31-match winning streak and 7 straight dual titles. Go Dragons!
After fifteen consecutive wins at the GHSA state-duals, Jefferson was able to get it done again and win their sixteenth title in a row. The Dragons have now won state titles in four classifications (A-AAAA).
The Dragons started their weekend with a solid victory on Thursday over Northside Columbus (79-0). On Friday, they claimed two more victories through the second and third round of the brackets over Marist (57-18) and Woodward Academy (50-16). This brought the Dragons into a highly anticipated clash with Gilmer County on Saturday. Although Gilmer County was the defending AAAA state champions, Jefferson beat them with a final score of 35-28 on Saturday.
