Jackson County lost a number of seniors from last year’s team but that had little effect on the Panthers’ season-opening tournament.
Jackson County topped the 10-team field in hosting the Panther Scramble Saturday. The team totaled 216.5 points, 60 points ahead of second-place South Paulding.
“We lose kids every year due to graduation,” coach Jason Powers said. “Last year’s class was a great class of kids and wrestlers. My focus has been on building a solid program from top to bottom. That means you must do all you can to make sure that a graduating class never cripples your team.”
