Raider Wrestlers 6th at Fulton County Championships

Raider Wrestlers 6th at Fulton County Championships
The Raiders participated in the first annual Fulton County Wrestling Championships on Friday, December 15 and Saturday, December 16. Hosted by Milton High School, the inaugural tournament drew 12 of the 18 Fulton County High Schools teams, ranging from 5A (Riverwood, Banneker) to 7A (Milton, Roswell), to determine the top wrestlers in the county. The Raiders sent ten wrestlers to the meet:
138  AJ Harris
170  Tre Forbes
As the first day concluded, five Raiders were advancing to Saturday's Semi Finals and another two were still alive in the consolation bracket. Advancing to the semi-finals were:  Ronan Quigley, Alex Gruenig, AJ Harris, Bashiri Bobo, and Ronald Humphrey. Mick McQuary and Tyler Grigg were in the consolation bracket.
Saturday's tournament began with mixed results. During the semi final round, Ronan Quigley was knocked out of contention for first, and Bashiri Bobo was injured and forced to exit the tournament. However, Alex Gruenig, AJ Harris, and Ronald Humphrey all pinned their opponents and advanced to the finals. Later that morning, Tyler Grigg and Ronan Quigley each won in the consolation bracket and advanced to wrestle for 3rd place.
At the end of the day, the Raiders had 2nd place finishes from Alex Gruenig, AJ Harris, and Ronald Humphrey; Ronan Quigley and Tyler Grigg each finished 4th in their weight class. As a team, the Raiders collected 79 points to finish a very respectable 6th overall out of 12 teams. The Raiders entered the tournament shorthanded due to injuries, and still showed well against much larger schools.
