The Newnan Cougar wrestling team was dominant on Saturday in the Area 2-7A wrestling duals at East Coweta High School. It was their fourth title in the last five years and the first under Head Coach Eric Shea.

The duals featured Newnan, East Coweta and McEachern, with all three guaranteed a shot at advancing to sectionals next week. Newnan and East Coweta both defeated McEachern earlier in the day to set up the all-Coweta County final.

In the finals, Newnan won 11 of the 14 weight classes on the way to a 63-15 victory. They will host one of eight sectionals throughout the state next week. Each sectional will have four participants, with the winner going on to state dual championships in Macon.
