Last year, it was senior Chad Hawkins. This year it is freshman Logan Sims, who dominated his weight class at the three-day GHSA Traditional Wrestling State tournament held at the Macon Centreplex.
Four matches, four wins in three days.
Sims’ arm was raised in victory Saturday afternoon when he pinned Ola’s Seth Osborne early in the second period.
“He [Logan] rolled him over onto his back and that was it,” said an elated coach Adrian Tramutola. “Everybody associated with Woodland wrestling was ecstatic to see Logan achieve his goal of becoming a state champion. You could see his intensity level increase with each match.”
That intensity began Thursday with his pin of Jeremy Fleury of Warner Robins, followed by his 16-2 dominance of Pope’s Josh Tazzelta. He reached the finals against Osborne with his 2-0 decision over Ware County’s Luke Littlefield.
“You have to feel great about his individual accomplishment,” Tramutola said. “There is nobody better than him at the 106-pound weight division [in Class AAA] in the state.”
