The Dawson County Tigers wrestling team competed in a tri-match at Gilmer last week and got wins over Robbinsville, N.C. as well as Fannin County.

The Tigers took down the Black Knights 48-31 and defeated the Rebels by a score of 42-30 during the Dec. 7 event.

Gilmer High School is a consistent winner at the 4A state level, and as predicted by Coach Arron Haynes, that matchup was a battle.

The Bobcats came out on top with a 58-13 win.

"Brandon Jones had an outstanding night and is really coming into his own right now," Haynes said. "I am very excited to see where the season leads him. He was 3-0 last night with a major decision, a technical fall and a pin fall."

Over the weekend the team traveled to Henderson, N.C. for the East Henderson Duals.

The team went 4-1 and took a third place overall finish on Dec. 10.

Dawson County won over Asheville, N.C. 52-21 and over Travelers Rest, S.C. 66-10.

The Tigers lost against Chase, N.C. 44-36.

Dawson also got wins over Cherokee, N.C. by a score of 60-11 and Hardin Valley Academy from T.N. 42-28.

The Tigers are currently 16-4 overall and will face Lumpkin and Jefferson at 5 p.m. today at Lumpkin County High School.
