Surry Central wrestling coach Stephen Priddy said both matches were tight.
The first match against Pisgah, it was a really tight match, he said. They had some really good kids, and they were the No. 1 seed coming out of their of conference. I thought everybody stepped up big. There were a couple of matches that couldve gone either way. Dakota Holder and Jared Salyers came up big for us tonight. Casey Felts and Cesar Pena came up big as well. We had a chance to put it away, and the pin at 152 by Josh Stover locked it up for us.
In the match against North Surry, Priddy also thought his team competed well.
I thought we wrestled them extremely tight again tonight, Priddy said of the district final match. We lost our 215 match in overtime, lost a close one at 112, and the 135 match between Jared Johnson and Chris Murray was a great match.
Surry Central finishes the season 31-7 overall.
Im extremely proud of our guys, Priddy concluded. I thought we had a great year.
