2012-2013 Highlights and Results


Orange WINS!!! Orange WINS!!!!

March 2 10:16, when all the mats were finally rolled up, our Orange Panthers were State Champions. This years tournament was a battle to the end. Orange brought 10 wrestlers to Greensboro. We lost 4 after two rounds & moved 6 into the Semi-Finals. Orange was leading but had JM Robinson, Union Pines, & St Stephens on our tail. Orange was ahead by 29.5 but still needed to wrestle on as JM Robinson had 2 in the championship & 4 in the consolations. Collin Smith took 5th & Anderson Pope took 3rd. Combined with JM Robinson's loss of 3 of 4 in the Consolation increased the Orange Panther lead to 18.5 points going into the Finals. The final round was not kind to the Panthers as Joe Scott, Jack Twomey-Kozak, David Peters-Logue & Aubrey Browning placed 2nd. Still it was the team effort that paid off for the Panthers repeating as State Individual Champions. Congratulations Panthers, GREAT season.

Orange Takes 2nd Place @ Eden Holiday Classic Duals

Our Panthers traveled to Morehead High School for the Eden Holiday Classic. Although the venue was familiar, the format was brand new. The JV squad competed in an individual tournament, while the Varsity wrestlers competed in a dual team tournament. Opening up against Martinsville the Panthers won 45 – 27. Next up was Southwest Guilford, Orange 54 – SW Guilford 14.

Probably the most anticipated match up was the rematch of last years' State 3A Championship, Orange vs. Southwest Randolph. It was back and forth for the bulk of the matchup, but our Panthers were victorious 34 – 28.

After another tough matchup against host Morehead, Orange was again victorious 36 – 26. The final contest of the tournament was against Jack Britt, it was an uphill battle all the way with Jack Britt giving Orange their first loss of the season, 9 - 60.
