The Camden wrestling team opened Region 6-AAA competition by splitting a pair of matches Wednesday night in Darlington.

The tri-match kicked off a busy week for Camden, which will travel to Hartsville tonight in a competition which also includes Darlington before competing in Saturday’s Gamecock Duals in Sumter.

The Bulldogs opened Wednesday night by securing a 48-24 victory over Marlboro County. CHS then dropped a tough match to the host Falcons in the nightcap.

In the night’s opening match, MC jumped out to a six-point lead by way of a pin at 130 pounds.

Camden would even the score at 135 with junior Seth White securing a first period pin over Jon York.

"That was easily the best match of Seth’s fledgling career. He’s been improving every day," said Bulldog head coach Stephen Sutusky. "Seth hit a couple cradles and worked the moves he’s been practicing. That always make us coaches feel pretty good."

At 140 pounds, CHS senior Michael Wall would earn a six-point victory for the Bulldogs to give them their first lead of the night. After Marlboro County victories via forfeits at 145 and 152 gave it an 18-12 advantage, Camden reeled off 30 unanswered team points to take a 42-18 advantage and clinch the match.

Nathan Branham, Trey Blow, and Brayan Mendez would all win by way of forfeit at 160, 171, and 189, respectively, before JeDarius Hayes (215) and heavyweight Tim Dixon each notched victories for the team.

"Tim’s pin was the quickest of the night, 45 seconds to be exact," Sutusky said of Dixon’s quick night. "Tim is always improving upon his performances as is practice partner Jedarius Hayes, who has really benefited from wrestling Tim daily in the practice room."

At 119, CHS senior Travis Jordan would battle Byron McClain for a tough six minutes before losing the match by decision. Camden’s scoring would conclude at 125 with Nick Tucker earning a win by forfeit.
