The Banks County Mat Leopards have shown a lot of determination and skill this season.
In four years, the Banks program has climbed from the bottom rung into the top 10 teams in AA. This year the Banks grapplers finished tied for seventh place at the State Duals Tournament, Jan. 17.
The Duals started off with Banks at a disadvantage, missing four starters due to injuries and facing defending champion Henry County.
“There was about a three match difference between us,” said wrestling head coach Kasey Hanley. “We were ahead in three matches and lost all three of those matches.”
