Gordon Lee, Gilmer County win GHSA State Wrestling Duals championships, 33-30

MACON, Ga. — Gordon Lee and Gilmer County captured GHSA State Wrestling Duals championships Saturday, the Trojans downing rival Holy Innocents and the Bobcats easily dispatching Alexander.

Gilmer, on the other hand, captured its fourth consecutive dual title with a 45-14 win in Class AAAA. Sam Snider's Bobcats had five pins in the match.
