Charlton Wrestlers qualify eight for State Sectionals

The Charlton County High School wrestling team sent nine wrestlers last weekend to the Area Tournament at Irwin County, and eight of those advanced to the Sectional Tournament by placing in the top four in their weight classes. The Sectional Tournament will be held at Strong Rock Christian School in Locust Grove. While the Indians didn’t claim any area titles, Asad Akbar and Jaylen Lilley both finished second in their weight categories. Placing third were Thomas Johnson, Nathan Johnson, Kyler Williams, and Craig Carlisle. Fourth place finishers were Edward McCormick and C.J. Lawrence. At the Sectional Tournament the top six places will qualify for the State Tournament.
