Staff Writer

The Fred T. Foard Tigers finished the 2019-2020 team season unbeaten as they captured the school’s third NCHSAA Dual Team title, and first since they won the 3A title in 2015, dominating Croatan 59-9 in the NCHSAA Dual Finals at the Greensboro Coliseum Field House Saturday afternoon (Feb. 8th).

The Tigers raced out to an early lead, earning wins by fall in the first four matches. Spencer Bechtol opened the event with a pin in 51 seconds at 120 pounds. Teammates Jamie Richard (126 lb.), Zane Birtchet (132 lb.), and Braden Wharton (138 lb.) followed with fall wins of their own. Wharton was named the 2A Dual Team Playoffs Most Outstanding Wrestler for his efforts this week. Foard’s Landon Foor (195 lb.) and Brock Carey (113 lb.) also earned wins by fall for the Tigers.

Foard wrestlers also turned in strong performances with technical fall victories at 152 pounds for Justin Whalen and 170 pounds for Hunter Lloyd. There was a single major decision for the Tigers going to David Weaver at 160 pounds.
