Chatham Central falls to Mitchell in 1-A wrestling

Posted February 8, 2014

Mitchell won four of the final six matches to take a tough 36-30 victory over host Chatham Central to win the North Carolina High School Athletic Association state 1-A dual team wrestling championship on Saturday evening.

It was Mitchell’s first NCHSAA dual team championship. Mitchell was runner-up in the very first dual team championship in 1990.

The match started at 220 pounds and the teams split pins in the first four bouts, and then each team won two of the next four individual matches. Starting after the 138-pound match, however, Mitchell strung together a series of victories. Mitchell 182-pounder Tanner Buchanan, who was named MVP of the championship, clinched the title with a pin at the 1:39 mark of his match.

Mitchell improved its dual team record to 37-7 while Chatham Central fell to 19-5 overall.
