RONDA — North Surry defeated four wrestling teams from Virginia Saturday in the East Wilkes Duals.
The Greyhounds lost for just the second time this season against Winston-Salem’s Glenn High School by one point.
The fifth match of the day came down to a score of 29-28, said Coach Eric Jessup. He called the Hounds/Glenn dogfight a really good wrestling match.
“I am happy with how we have performed and progressed so far and though we have work to do, progress is being made,” he said.
Jessup said the Hounds went into the final three weights behind by 15 points at 29-14. Then, Austin McMillan got a pin to cut the lead to nine and Tristen Brannock got a tech fall, good for five points to make it 29-24, Jessup said.
Jessup said, “Austin Rozier got a minor decision worth three, wrestled good, and did his very best.”
The team’s record is 20-2 so far, said Jessup.
Jessup said that he would like to compliment the other conference team, Mount Airy, during the “dogfight” on Saturday who also was against some tough competition, he said.
The Hounds coach said the 5-0 wins for the team Saturday belonged to: Austin McMillian, Tristen Brannock, Austin Rozier, Austin Collins, Levi Slate and Corbin Bullins.
In the early matches, North Surry beat Galax 78-6; 77-3 against Carroll County; 68-12 against Martinsville; and 84-0 against Grayson.
