The Red Terrors had three wrestlers place at the tournament. Divonte Reaves advanced to the championship round of the 220-pound weight class before losing to Commerce High's Chance McClure, who has never lost in two-plus years at the high school level. Reaves finished the tournament with a 2-1 record.

Glynn captain Kennith Newman-Sledge came through the consolation bracket in the 170 class to finish third. Sledge went 6-1 at the tournament.

Up next for Glynn is the Area 3-AAAAA traditional tournament Friday and Saturday at Effinghan County in Springfield where the top four wrestlers in each weight class qualify for the Class AAAAA East sectionals in Loganville.
