The North Hall wrestling team continued its successful season this Saturday with wins over Lafayette and Oconee County in a Class 3A duals state preliminary event at North Hall High School. The Trojans beat Lafayette 64-12 in the first round, then took down Oconee County 70-12 in the finals.
The victories earn North Hall a place in the Class 3A duals state championships next Saturday, Jan. 30, at Cherokee Bluff High School.
The Trojans, the defending Class 3A state duals champions, have already won an Area 7-3A championship earlier this season.
Flowery Branch will also advance to the state tournament following a preliminary victory. The Falcons will compete in the state tournament, beginning at 9 a.m. at Jefferson High School on Jan. 30.
