The winning ways for the St. Stephens wrestling team and coach Billy Baker continue.
Baker, who won his 350th duals match at St. Stephens last week, has been at the school for 11 years. He has coached wrestling for 16 years, including a five-year stint at Lincolnton.
Three hundred seventeen of the 350 victories during Baker's career came at the helm of the Indians' program.
At the first gathering of all area swim teams, Hickory swept the board.
The Tornadoes won the boys and girls team awards and the combined team award.
"This is the first meet we had with the whole county since I've been coaching," said Hickory head coach Cathy Hitchcock. "We swim them at dual meets, but not everyone together. So it was kind of a neat thing to see all levels together."
It was an emotional night for the Maiden swim team. They were competing for the first time without teammate Kelsey Ann Hunt, who passed away on Christmas day.
