Chase Seals wrestled his way to an individual championship to lead the way for the Troup Tigers in a traditional-format tournament at Alexander on Saturday.

Ten Troup wrestlers competed in the tournament, and eight of them placed.

Among that group was Seals, who captured the top spot at 145 pounds to continue what has been an exceptional senior season.

Michael Irvin, who like Seals was coming off a 9-0 performance in the Dariel Daniel Grind, wrestled his way to a second-place finish at 220 pounds.

Scott Hicks, who also went 9-0 in the Dariel Daniel Grind, placed third at 152 pounds.

Colby Harry was third at 285 pounds, Darious Hanson placed third at 120 pounds, Brantly Robinson finished third at 132 pounds, and Quenton Kersey was third at 182 pounds.

Trevor Upchurch finished fifth for Troup at 126 pounds.

Troup will defend its championship in the Area 5-AAAA duals on Saturday at Cedartown.
