Telfair County High School Trojan Wrestling traveled to the Macon Centreplex in Macon, Georgia last week to compete in the Georgia High School Association’s (GHSA) State Wrestling Tournament. Three Trojans made the trip — two senior wrestlers, Ian Blankenship and Camry Johnson and one sophomore, Cameo Blankenship. The Trojans came away with the 182 lb Class A State Championship title when Senior Ian Blankenship demolished his weight class. The Trojans also captured third place with Cameo Blankenship in the 170 lb class and Senior Camry Johnson finished sixth in the 126 lb class.
“I’m so proud of these you men’s performance at the state tournament,” says TCHS Wrestling Coach Thor Ott. “Ian has worked his tail off for this championship! In the past he has finished third and second
which makes this even better.”
“It feels great!” says State Champ Ian Blakenship about winning it all this year. “Its a wonderful feeling to know that all the hard work you’ve put in over the years has finally led you to the success that you’ve always wanted.”

The latest report from the Telfair County Sheriff’s Office (TCSO) details a traffic stop that led to the arrest of a local man on felony drug charges and a cell search at the Telfair County Jail which resulted in additional charges for a female prisoner in custody there. “It is never a good idea to bring contraband onto the premises of a jail or prison,” says Telfair Sheriff Chris Steverson. In doing so, you automatically qualify yourself for additional felony charges. Our deputies and jail staff routinely search for contraband inside of the facility in an effort to keep drugs, weapons and other contraband out. Inmates or others who are found to be in possession of, or are responsible for the introduction of, contraband will in every instance, be charged additionally with every appropriate felony charge and prosecuted accordingly.”
