Campbell County Middle School Wrestlers won the KHSAA State Duals Tournament on Saturday at CCMS. This was the 3rd consecutive State Duals Championship for the Camels!
There are two different tournament types: “Duals” are tournaments where schools compete head-to-head, with one wrestler from each weight class facing off to score team points. “Individual” tournaments are conducted with many athletes at a particular weight class competing to see who is the best at each weight. These tournaments also allow teams to accumulate points. As such, individuals and teams are recognized.
The best teams in the state traveled to Campbell County Middle School Saturday for the State Duals. Campbell County wrestled well throughout the day and advanced to the Finals. North Oldham (Louisville Area) also wrestled well and met the Camels to determine the State Championship.
The finals lived up to their hype as the teams battled back-and-forth the entire way. The Camels were down by 9 points with only 3 wrestlers to go. They wrestled hard, tough matches and sealed the victory for Campbell County by only 1 point! The Camels hoisted 8th Grader, Jordan Hahn, on their shoulders and carried him off the mat after he won the final match sealing the Championship.
This was truly a team victory, with wrestlers from each weight class and grade contributing to team’s success.
Now, the Camels turn their attention to the Individual State Tournament held this Saturday in Mt. Sterling. The Camels will be competing to for their 4th Consecutive State Title.
These young men are the future of Campbell County’s Wrestling program…which is already doing very well. CCHS Wrestler’s also won the State Duals Title this weekend, are ranked #1 in the tri-state, and are poised to repeat at the State Tournament in a few weeks.
It is a great time to be a Camel! Stay tuned as we bring you more results from the upcoming tournaments.
