LHS Mat Lions continue to make LHS history in Sectionals!
11 Lion Wrestlers going to State Sectionals
The individual portion of the wrestling season started last weekend with the region tournament (01/28). On the way to winning our second tradition region title (in as many years), 13 of the 14 varsity wrestlers placed in the top 4 to move onto the sectional tournament.
weekend the Mat-Lions were at the sectional tournament, which included 29 AAAA
teams. The top 8 wrestlers in
each weight class earned the right to
participate in the state tournament in Macon next week (Feb. 09, 10, 11).
<The state has two sectional tournaments, which then determines the top 16 wrestlers in each weight class.>

the state tournament this weekend.
