BHS wrestlers down Monroe, Dougherty

Coach David Kirkland’s Bainbridge High School Bearcats wrestling team started the post holiday portion of their schedule on a high note last Thursday, defeating Albany’s Monroe High School Tornadoes and Dougherty High School Trojans on the road.

Top performers included Martin Dollar, who won both of his matches in the 119-pound weight class, and Marc Fleetwood, who won both of his matches in the 130-pound weight class match.

Other top performers were Brian McMillan, who won his 130-pound weight class match, and Bryan Ordonez, who won both of his matches in the 135-pound weight class.

Rounding out the strong Bearcat performances in Albany were Brock Merchant, who won both of his matches in the 160-pound weight class, and Cameron Fountain, who won both of his matches in the 171-pound weight class.

“This was a great performance and team effort,” Kirkland said following his team’s Albany performances. “Though we had to forfeit three weight classes because we just don’t have anyone to fill them, we still managed to pull our victories in the matches.”

The Bearcats return to action Thursday when they travel to Cairo for a 5 p.m. dual match with the Cairo High School Syrupmakers.

Friday they will travel to Thomas County for a 5 p.m. three-way match with Dougherty and the homestanding Thomas County Central High School Yellow Jackets.
