NCHSAA DUAL TEAM WRESTLING SUMMARIES
2-A: NEWTON-CONOVER 44, DIXON 15

NEWTON – Newton-Conover held off Dixon 44-15 to clinch its second consecutive North Carolina High School Athletic Association state 2-A dual team wrestling championship on Saturday here at Lemon Gymnasium.

The Red Devils rolled up a 35-13 margin with three matches to go to clinch the crown in winning their 38th consecutive math and running their overall dual mark to an outstanding 52-1. Newton-Conover made its fifth appearance in the dual team finals.

The match began at 220 pounds and after the 120-pound match Dixon held a 12-9 lead. But Newton-Conover 126-pounder Coleman Carter won by a pin at the 1:47 mark to put the Red Devils ahead, and they never trailed again. Carter had won of the four Red Devil pins on the day and was named MVP of the championship match.

Dixon, which beat last year’s runner-up Newport Croatan in the third round of the dual team playoffs, lost for only the second time in 24 dual meets.
