Wrestling in Newton

Recommended Posts

With Newton-Conover and Fred T. Foard, there is a lot of good wrestling happening in Newton. These two programs have become traditional powers and both once again have powerful teams capable of winning State. Last year FTF beat N-C 29-25 in the playoffs, and they faced off in an epic battle once again last night in front of a big crowd. These kids put on a show with each school taking the lead in the match on multiple occassions. Final score N-C 33  FTF 30

I have a feeling these teams will see each other again with the stakes being much higher.

Newton-Conover wrestled St. Stephens with both having undefeated records. Saint pulled away in a close match to stay undefeated. Newton dropped to 15-1. Saint Stephens has 12 senoirs and have to be considered one of the top contenders in the west if not the state as well.

Catawba County is maybe top 3 wrestling counties in North Carolina. There will be a lot of wrestling over the holiday break with schools wresting 10 or more matches.

GDG, you are correct, another good match and St. Stephens was a little too much. The Indians will be tough to handle in 3A while NC and Foard will be tough in 2A.  Catawba County definitely has some good wrestling.

Could we see St Stephens and North Henderson on a collision course.  Seen both this year and that would be a fun match up.

St. Stephens went undefeated in duals this year and will easily win the conference tourney today. They are loaded with seniors starting. Heard 11 of 14 weight classes are seniors.

Newton is ranked #1 in the state with a record of 46-2. One loss to St. Stephens. They barely beat West Lincoln and Fred T Foard. These three teams should via for the state crown and are equal in talent. The 2A west is loaded with great teams as usual.

West Lincoln wins the conference tournament with Newton second. These two pretty much dominated the event with no other team over two digits in points.

Fred T Foard and West Lincoln are on the same side of the bracket for playoffs. Hopefully neither meet in round two as I have not seen the bracket.
