All-star wrestlers honored


The top DeKalb County high school wrestlers were honored March 6 for their success on the wrestling mat this past season.

The wrestlers received awards during the all-star celebration held at the Northlake Chick-fil-A on LaVista Road. The school district’s athletic department and Southwest DeKalb coach Keith Johnson partnered with Chick-fil-A to hold the celebration.

McNair coach Ramon Tillery was named coach of the year. He led the Mustangs to a fourth-place finish in the Class AAA state traditional wrestling tournament last month. It was the team’s second top 10 finish in program history.

Each DeKalb school, including Decatur, Marist and St. Pius X, had a wrestler named to the first team and an honorable mention. Members of the first team received plaques, which were sponsored by Diijon and Tiijon DaCosta, former Redan High School wrestlers and founders of DeKalb Kids Project Inc.
