Recently two Grappling Indians representing Dodge County Wrestling Club travelled to Atlanta to compete in the prestigious Georgia Grind Wrestling Tournament. This annual tournament draws the best of the best from the South East and is billed as one of the toughest tournaments in the south.
Representing Dodge County this year was Jared Cannon and McCay Turner. Cannon turned in a near perfect performance on the day fighting his way through the consolation bracket to win third place. Not stopping there, he was able to challenge for second place and defeated his opponent in grand fashion to bring home a second place finish.
At 85 pounds, Turner battled some seasoned opponents all day and never quit. He won his opening match quite impressively before being sent to the consolation bracket. Scrapping his way through the bracket he needed to win every match to stay in the tournament. By the time the dust settled, Turner had defeated all-comers and emerged victorious in the consolation finals to earn a third place trophy.
