It wasn’t how North Forsyth wrestling coach Travis Jarrard drew it up, but it worked. The Raiders trailed by 23 points in the final round of the Area 6-AAAAAA duals championship, but stormed back to cut the lead to 36-34 with only one match left. Senior Matt Carroll, who had to move up a weight class from 160 pounds to 170, pinned his opponent to move to 36-0 on the season and gave North a 40-36 win over Chattahoochee and an area duals title for the second consecutive season on Saturday at West Forsyth High School.
