Conference-winning Northwest Guilford wrestlers made it to the second round of the 4A state championships Tuesday before bowing out at home to West Forsyth.


"It's a pretty tough tournament," Coach Ron Bare said. "You've got the best teams in the state."


The defending 4A state champion Vikings, hosting the first two rounds, edged Mallard Creek (21-8) 32-31 before losing to West Forsyth (16-5) 32-22.


Northwest finished the season as Metro 4A Conference champs with an undefeated 4-0 record, 35-2 overall. While there's no end-of-season conference tournament, the Vikings participated in the Guilford County individual's tournament last weekend, placing second to Southeast Guilford.


The All Conference team has yet to be announced, but two Northwest wrestlers were undefeated during the season and five won 40 or more matches.


Undefeated Vikings were James Joplin (46-0 through last weekend), a junior wrestling at 126 pounds, and Riley Edwards (47-0), a junior at 132 pounds. Others winning at least 40 matches were Will Gibson (41-7), a freshman at 106 pounds; Lake Price (40-5), a senior at 138 pounds, and Marcus Harnarain (45-8), a junior at 285 pounds.


"We had a good season," Bare said. "We wrestled well. We had some young kids who came along and helped us out and older kids who did well. So, no complaints."
