Every year at this time, wrestlers all over Georgia know they need to perform or it's over. Only the top 4 from each of the Division AAAAA regions move on to Sectionals. From there, the top 8 wrestlers in the East Section that the Grizzlies are part of, will meet the top 8 from the West Section at State Traditionals in Macon GA. the following week.
Creekview started out strong and put 5 wrestlers in the finals. Seven more Grizzlies had to climb back through the brackets after a loss, to try for a top 4 finish and a ticket to sectionals. All 7 were successful and will join the finalists in Loganville.
