Winston-Salem, NC- Orange emerged from the pack as the first-day leader after Friday's action in the North Carolina High School Athletic Association 1-A/2-A state wrestling tournament championships at the Lawrence Joel Veterans Memorial Coliseum.

The two teams which met for the NCHSAA dual team title two weeks ago are on top in the tight standings, led by Orange with 51.5 points and Newton-Conover in second with 38. Orange beat Newton-Conover for the dual team championship.

Robbinsville is in third with 31.5 points, followed by defending champ Mount Pleasant with 30 and Mayodan Dalton McMichael with 29.

One of the highlights on the opening day of action was the performance of Rosewood's Olivia Neal at 103 points, the first female wrestler ever to qualify for the state tournament. Neal won her first two matches before losing to Robbinsville's Erik Messick on a technical fall in the quarterfinals.

Action will resume on Saturday morning at 8:30, with the Parade of Champions and the title matches set for six o'clock Saturday night.

Wendy's and the Carolina Ford Dealers are the presenting sponsors for the NCHSAA sports program, and the event is sponsored by Visit Winston-Salem.
