Red and Green.
Iâ€™m not talking about Christmas colors, but rather those of Newton-Conover and Bandys high schools. One of these teams will receive a gift next week, as they square off in a classic confrontation in the Catawba Valley 2A.
The rivalry started when Eddy Clark decided to take the wrestling head coaching position at Newton-Conover.
â€śI took over this program in 1999,â€ť Clark said. â€śThat next year, we got good and won the conference. We beat Bandys. That set the stage, and it has been a heated rivalry.â€ť
