MatDawgs Find Tough Competition in Brunswick

Lyons, GA. – January 8, 2024 | Coach Todd Allen

The first competition of the New Year for the MatDawgs had them traveling to Brunswick High School to compete in the Port City Nigel Hamilton Memorial Tournament. The tournament is an annual tournament held in honor of Nigel Hamilton. Nigel was a standout wrestler under now Brunswick head coach Tommy Bartolotta while coaching at Glynn Academy and then transferred to Camden County.

The MatDawgs were able to secure a 4th place finish as a team, placing 11 of the 14 wrestlers entered into the top 5. The top 3 teams at the tournament were powerhouse Camden County in first place, Glynn Academy in second place, and Richmond Hill in third place. “I knew with the teams attending that we would have some battles. These teams are some of the best in the state and I was proud of our team for the fight they had.”, said Coach Allen of the tournament.

The MatDawgs head to Vidalia on Friday, January 12, 2024 for the Area Duals. This will be in the old Vidalia gym and wrestling begins at 3:30 pm. Come out and support the MatDawgs as they begin their journey to the State Dual Championships!
