Carrying momentum from its big victory Saturday at the Indian Classic, the Newton-Conover wrestling team continued its brilliance on the mat Thursday.

The Red Devils took an early lead and held off a tough West Wilkes squad for a 40-22 victory.

“We knew what they had,” Clark said. “They have 11 kids ranked in the top five of the state. We knew we had our work cut out for us.”
