It’s a double-double for Polk County Middle School’s wrestling team.

The Wolverines added another plaque for the school trophy case, winning the team title at Friday’s Blue Ridge Conference Wrestling Tournament at Pisgah High School in Canton.

It marks the second straight year that Polk Middle has swept the conference dual team and tournament team championships. No Blue Ridge Conference school has done that since Flat Rock in 2016-17. The Wolverines’ total of 219.5 points topped runner-up Canton Middle (183) and third-place Flat Rock (134.5).

Polk Middle had two individual conference champions – Isaiah Staley at 145 pounds and Chester Wilson at 160 pounds. But the Wolverines had five second-place finishers and 14 top-four finishers, setting a program record for the most conference placers in a season.

Wilson dominated his division, winning all three matches by pin. Staley earned his title with a pin in the final of Canton’s Kyle Ostrowski in a matchup of undefeated wrestlers.

Cole Huntley, Liam Jackson, Gavin Waldbillig, Andy Serrano and Danny Bradley brought home second-place finishes.
