West tops South in state duals

The West Forsyth and South Forsyth wrestling teams met in the consolation quarterfinals of the Class 7A state duals in Macon on Friday, with West prevailing 36-27.

The dual was a rematch of the Region 5-7A title match, which West also won. Friday’s meeting was close throughout, and West led just 30-27 entering the final match, at 170 pounds, but Creston Lorenzo pinned Brayden Simpson to give the Wolverines six points and the win. West continued its drive for third place on Saturday, which took place after press time.
