One of the best seasons ever on the wrestling mat for Newton-Conover came to a close on Saturday.
The Red Devils finished as the team state runners-up at the 2A state wrestling tournament at the Greensboro Coliseum.
Six of the 10 Red Devil wrestlers that qualified for states finished in the top six of each weight class, which earned them a spot on the championship podium.
With his brother Andrew hoisting him high in the air, Bandys wrestler Anthony Christopher celebrated a lifelong achievement at the Greensboro Coliseum on Saturday.
Christopher defeated Croatan's Kyle Colborn by a 6-3 decision to claim the 195-pound 2A state championship â€” the 13th Trojan wrestler since 1995 to claim an individual title.
