Over the weekend, Darlington swept the 2015 GISA Middle School State Championship Tournament winning first place with four state champions, two runners-up, and two third-place finishers.
The meet took place on Saturday at Trinity Christian School in Dublin, Ga. At last year's championship, Darlington's Middle School wrestling team came home as first runner-up.
Highlights of the meet included strong performances by seventh-graders Bryant Busby and Dawson Williams, and eighth-grader Colin Zazzaro in their respective finals matches.
Eighth-grader Rhett McDurmon defeated the reigning Team Georgia wrestler in 35 seconds by pin, earning McDurmon's second consecutive state championship title.
Fellow team members Jackson Brewster, Andy Brunt, Luke Gober, Kobe Nadu and Burke Schrimsher also helped secure Darlington's first-place win at the GISA Middle School State Championship Tournament.
