It was a solid showing for the Mat Panthers of Jackson County over the weekend, as they placed in the top eight at the state Dual Tournament in Macon, with the team going 2-2 on the weekend.
The meet started out on a high note, as Jackson County took the win over Westover 46-21 to open up the meet. The second round proved to be a little more difficult, however, as the Panthers fell to Lafayette 51-17.
“We had a couple of close matches against Lafayette,” said coach Jason Powers. “For state seeding purposes, it was a great match for us.”
