The NCHSAA 2A Wrestling Individual Wrestlers Regional Competition is being held this weekend.
Wrestlers from West Lincoln, Lincolnton, Maiden, Newton-Conover and Fred T. Foard are competing in the West Regionals at Wilkes Central High School in Wilkesboro. Wrestlers from North Lincoln, East Lincoln & Bandys are competing in the Midwest Regionals in Lexington. The top four wrestlers in each class at the regionals will advance to the state individual championships at the Greensboro Coliseum next week (Febuary 20-22).
At the West Regionals Friday:
Brock Carey from Fred T. Foard won his first three matches in the 106-lb division and is guaranteed at least a second place. He needs one win for the championship.
In the 120-lb class, Langston Hoffman of West Lincoln and Cameron Smith of Lincolnton both won their first three matches and will wrestle for the championship. The loser of that match will take second place.
In the 113-lb bracket, Ian Willis of Foard won his first three and is assured no worse than a second place finish. The same is true of Zane Birtchet of Foard in the 132-lb division and Xander Pendergrass of West Lincoln in 138-lb.
