Larry Hammer was region runner-up for the Makers and Marcus Herring, Logan Arline, and Anthony Mosley all placed third. Phillip Land brought home a fourth place finish for Cairo as well.
However, it would be Robinson’s region championship that came in a most dramatic way. The three-time defending champion wrestled in the 160 pound weight class. Losing 8-12 in the third period with 15 seconds to go on the clock, Dewain reversed his opponent and caught him on his back. “It was very dramatic, that move by Dewain was a five-point move, and that gave him a 13-12 win as the clock ran out,” said CHS wrestling coach Kevin Elliott.
Cairo will now move on to the sectionals this weekend in Atlanta.
