Team NC Juniors Pick Up 25+ wins in Greco

Wilson Smith earned a solid 5th place finish and finished as North Carolina's only Junior Greco All-American today in Fargo. Smith dropped a close semi-final match to eventual National Champ Gabriel Townsell 10-7, and then fell to defending National Champ Coltan Williams 11-10, but finished with a strong 6-0 win over Cody Karstetter to earn 5th place. Smith also defeated Karstetter in the quarterfinals.

Several other Team NC wrestlers made solid showings on Day 2 of Greco Competition, including Angel Najar of Greenville WC. Najar battled back from a tough 1st round loss to go 6-2 in the tournament, but fell just shy of the placement round.

Overall Team NC earned a combined 28 wins, which represented one of the states strongest showings in several years.
