Congratulations to Marietta’s Lawton Ward for winning the 2013 6A State Championship at 170 lbs!!

February 16, 2013 – Lawton Ward capped off a terrific season by winning the 170 lb State Championship in Macon, GA.  Lawton defeated Lambert’s Joey Salgado with a 1st round pin to start the tournament.  In the second round, he squared off against Najee Bank’s of Chattahoochee HS and secured a 7-3 victory.
In the semi-final match, Lawton faced Eliot Lee of Archer HS.  With an early lead, Lawton seemed to have the match in hand.  However, Lee closed the gap and forced the bout into overtime.  Lawton scored an impressive takedown and launched himself into the championship!

In the final, Lawton faced a familiar opponent, Brady Sandercock of Cherokee HS.  These two had faced off earlier in the season, with Lawton prevailing in a very close and hard fought match.  This time, Lawton maintained control throughout and secured the win by a score of 7-4.
