Where gwinnett county schools had a strong showing. We have a state champion and we have three teams in the top five. Tell me about what you saw was the most obvious is the north winds boys Winning the state championship it a great effort by north. They did a lot more than last year. That a three hundred sixty one points which was forty more than i scored last year when they when state so it was great to see them repeat the had three top five relays which which is huge points to get to that that that level but individually smith thanks to lucon had a couple of state runner up finishes trista. Denver broncos had two third place finishes so a lot of points there as well and like you said freak couple more teams in the top. Five park views third. They wanna state championship in the two hundred. Medley relay With nate stole having a big meat. So good job by those teams made on the top five. And you look at the the girls made. I think what what highlighted the girls mate was a lily. Burke and abby mccullough from brooklyn and parkview they want to more state titles each that gives them thirteen combined state titles and sixteen individual events in their career. There been post swimmer the year the last couple of years a good chance to see them repeat in that again this week and also well the state championship wrestling tournament is coming up this weekend. Yeah the number one beepers looking for a sweep. They won the state duals and they're looking for a better performance in the state traditional. Bring home some individual titles and hopefully bring on the team trophy In the upper classes tougher gwinnett team to win a state championship there. But i think there's a lot individual wrestlers things that can accomplish in a to play titles this so looking forward to see that that comes out at state wrestling no wesleyan Finished fifth in the state.
