Boys’ wrestling: Bryan County, Richmond Hill fall short in state title hopes

Bryan County and Richmond Hill’s wrestling teams had both advanced to the Sweet 16 in their respective classes but they came up short in their attempt at winning a state championship in last weekend’s state duals (team) meet.

The Redskins, advancing to the state meet for the second time in the four years of the program, lost to Heard County, 66-18, and was then beaten by St. Francis, 56-24, in Class A which was won by Social Circle.

Richmond Hill dropped a 33-28 decision to Archer in its opening round Class 7A match and then stayed alive with a 70-9 win over East Coweta in the consolation round before losing to North Gwinnett, 30-28. Camden County won its 10th consecutive state title.

Richmond Hill’s girls' team will be wrestling in the girls' all-classes tournament this Friday and Saturday at the University of West Georgia.
