Heritage Wrestlers Capture Heritage Duals

Saturday, November 24, 2012 - by B.B. Branton
Defending Georgia AAA traditional wrestling state champion Heritage Generals claimed its own tournament – Heritage Duals – Saturday for the third straight year.

The Generals under first year head coach Mike Craft went 5-0 on the day, including a victory against 2012 Georgia A state duals champion Gordon Lee.

“We worked hard in the pre-season and today’s results are a good reflection of how we have prepared,” said coach Craft.

Heritage defeated East Hamilton (52-18) and Red Bank (76-6) in pool play.
In matches against other pool winners, the Generals topped Southeast Whitfield (57-21), Gordon Lee (52-24) and Northwest Whitfield (59-18).

SE Whitfield, Gordon Lee and Northwest Whitfield tied for second.

“We graduated nine starters from last year’s state championship team so to go 5-0 today is a good start,” Craft stated.
