Wrestlers from across North Carolina from Cherokee to Manteo converged in Winston-Salem this weekend for the 45th annual state freestyle and greco-roman state championships. The results were exciting wrestling from some of North Carolina's very best wrestlers of all ages.
Freestyle competition drew the largest crowd on Saturday, with nearly three hundred wrestlers competing. The Strong and Courageous wrestling club flexed their club muscle once again, earning top honors in the large club division, followed closely by Backyard WC. In the small club division the OBX Elite held off Dogtown Wrestling to earn the top team honors. Complete results for freestyle can be found by CLICKING HERE.
