It didn’t take long for North Davie’s wrestling team to get going.

The Wildcats buried North Rowan 94-0 on the road in the Oct. 19 season opener.

Coach Jamey Holt got nine pins from Travis Duggins, Preston Young, Kolby Long, Taylor Shenberger, Jack Greer, Isaac O’Toole, Jaden Dillard, Peyton Jordan and Nathan Smith. Chris Gonzalez won by major decision.

The Mavericks handed over six forfeits.

“O’Toole is the best of the bunch,” said Holt, who has third-year weapons in Shenberger, Long and Anderson. “Jaden has a chance to be really good. A couple others have some potential, but we’ll see.”

Erwin 54, Ellis 51

Ellis had the win in its grasp on Oct. 19, but host Erwin snatched the last three weight classes to hand the Jaguars a painful loss on a day when they claimed nine of 17 matches.

A forfeit at 195 hurt the Jags.

“We led the entire match,” coach Charles Compton said.

Ellis got eight pins from Grayson Daugherty, Randy Hackett, Daniel Hennessey, Carter Hoots, Allen Moxley, Finn Sink, Jackson Strader and Garrett Whitaker. Austin Eggers won by decision.

“I can’t wait to see how great they will become,” an upbeat Compton said.

South Davie lost its opener by one point at China Grove.
