Maroon Devils Network
Bryson City – For one of the rare times in our wrestling program, the Maroon Devils found themselves hosting the Regional Championship round in the NCHSAA Team Dual Tournament.
Unfortunately, the Devils could not turn being at home into an advantage. Avery took the Maroon Devils in the 3rd round. The Vikings took the match 45-32, ending the Maroon Devils season.
The Vikings nearly pulled off the upset as they took Robbinsville to the brink in the Western Regional Championship match. Robbinsville took the win, trailing 30-29 heading into the final match of the night, the outcome was in doubt. In that final match the Knights scored a win on points in the closing seconds of the match. With the 3 points the Black Knights punched their ticket to the State Championships with a 32-30 win.
Several Maroon Devils will compete at the individual regionals in Robbinsville on Friday and Saturday.
The state individual tourney is in Greensboro Thursday, Feb. 14-Saturday, Feb. 16.
