Lassiter Wrestling is making its way to the AAAAAA state championship meet in Gainesville on January 21 after beating Pope 42-39 for the Region 7AAAAAA title earlier in January and then defeating Tift County in a close 36-33 win to claim the sectional title. The team is guaranteed at least a top 8 finish in the state this year. Lassiter is the only Cobb County team to make it to state this season.
