Troup went 3-2 in the event and may have done better had all team members participated.
Coach Chris Mitchem reported there were 10 athletes unable to wrestle most out with the flu.
Team captain Michael Mackfield, who had been ill all week, returned to school on Friday, but did not wrestle.
“The flu that’s going around is just killing us,” Mitchem said. “Hopefully we’ll have everybody back this week.”
Troup defeated Lamar County 54-30, lost to Spencer 52-27, defeated Brookstone 58-24, lost to Jordan 50-30 and defeated Carver of Columbus 63-21.
“I was proud because we had a lot of varsity guys out and we still performed nicely,” Mitchem said. “I’m just glad we’re seeing constant improvement. Hopefully we’ll peak at the end of the season.”
