Gardendale wrestling wins title

GARDENDALE, Ala. (WBRC) - Gardendale won it’s first state championship in 45 years Saturday afternoon at the AHSAA State Wrestling Tournament. Gardendale, who took home the 6A state title with 175.5 points, won back-to-back titles in 1974-75 in 1A-3A.

“It means a lot to me because we lost a lot of kids over the last couple of years, but these kids battled, battled, and battled, and this is just for them,” said Gardendale head coach Brian Brasseal.
