Winston-Salem Parkland won its seventh consecutive North Carolina High School Athletic Association state dual team wrestling championship Saturday afternoon, but it wasn’t easy.

Parkland had to come from behind and win the final two matches of the day to score a 28-20 victory over Fayetteville Jack Britt, taking the 4-A championship in front of the Britt home crowd.

Britt had rolled up five consecutive decisions to build a 20-12 lead before Parkland came back. With Britt on top 20-18, Jeremy Ward of Parkland at 132 pounds won on the only pin of the day to put the Mustangs ahead 24-20 with just one match to go. But with the Buccaneers needing a pin to capture the crown, Chucky Hedrick of Parkland won by major decision at 138 to clinch the title.

Parkland finished the dual team season with a perfect 48-0 mark and won its fourth straight 4-A title after winning three at the 3-A level. The Mustangs have an amazing 52-8 all-time record in NCHSAA postseason play and have reported won 313 dual matches in succession.

Britt finished with a record of 33-8 overall.
