Prep wrestling: First-year Wolverines earn Duals state berth

ELLIJAY – It wasn't exactly what West Forsyth coach Dennis Stromie was hoping for: nobody wants to lose 73-3 in the finals. But the Wolverines' second-place finish at Saturday's Area 7-AAA Duals championship was more than the veteran coach expected from his first-year program.

"I coached at Parkview for 22 years and won two state duals championships, and this is right up there with those," Stromie said of the Wolverines state-clinching finish. "I'm just so happy for the kids, because I want them to be able to experience those things."
