The Mary Persons Mat Dogs took first place out of four teams at the 2nd annual Dawg Brawl tournament on Friday, Dec. 30 at the Hubbard campus gym.

The Bulldogs outmatched Rutland, Peach County, and John Milledge Academy. MP coach Barron Hamlin said they were expecting six teams but two canceled at the last minute. But the Bulldogs manhandled the schools that did show up to compete, including Peach County, a region foe.
