Local wrestlers do well

Four wrestlers of the Intensive Wrestling Academy competed this past weekend at USA Wrestling's Southeast Regionals in freestyle and Greco-Roman wrestling. Over 1,500 competitors in three age divisions from as far away as Wisconsin and Connecticut as well as the southeastern U.S. competed in the two-day tournament held at the World Congress Center in Atlanta. The four wrestlers from Tifton who competed were (from, left) Austin Woods, 182 junior division; Charlie Powell, 195 cadet division; Cole Dillard, 145 junior division and Rayder Schemmel, 182 junior division. They were joined by coach Craig Dean, far left. All four of these wrestlers wrestled well against very accomplished competition that included several returning All-Americans. Powell was the highest placer among the Tifton competitors with a 5th place finish in freestyle. This tournament culminates the freestyle and Greco season in Georgia and the members of the Intensive Wrestling Academy will now concentrate on preparing for the high school wrestling season and summer camps.
