GREENSBORO – The Uwharrie Charter Eagles ran out to an early 15-0 lead in the first
three matches and managed to hold off a hard-charging Robbinsville squad 36-32 in
closing matches to win the school’s first dual team wrestling championship.

Josh Poteat started things off quickly for the Eagles, pinning Robbinsville’s Luke
Wilson in 1:13 to put Uwharrie Charter up 6-0. Then Hayden Waddell received a
forfeit win to push the Eagles out to a 12-0 lead and Timmy Blake followed that up a
132-pounds with a 5-0 decision win over Braden Millsaps to make the deficit 15-0.

Robbinsville was not deterred and responded with back-to-back wins by pin as Nathan
Fisher and Kade Millsaps won by fall at 138-pounds and 145-pounds respectively to
cut the lead to 15-12 in favor of the Eagles. Caleb Bryant was able to stem the
Knights momentum, holding on for a 4-2 decision victory over Robbinsville’s Cooper
Cable. Then Jerry Jimenez followed that up by pinning Kamron McGuire at the 4:36
mark of the 160-pound bout to give Uwharrie Charter a 24-12 lead.

Austin Lovin kept Robbinsville within striking distance as he won a 9-2 decision at
170-pounds, beating Uwharrie Charter’s Garrett Smith to trim the advantage to 24-15.
However, in the next match at 182-pounds, Isaiah Martin stunned Jaret Panama,
pinning him in just 0:09 seconds and putting the Eagles ahead comfortably 30-15.

The Knights battled back with a 7-2 decision win by Payne Anderson at 195-pounds and
a win by fall at 3:53 by Isaac Wilkinson over Aiden Carter to cut the deficit to
30-24. But in the 285-pound bout, Robbinsville’s Kyle Fink was disqualified during
the match, giving Sergio Saldana the victory and Uwharrie Charter a 36-24 lead with
just two matches remaining.

Jaden Nowell went to work at 106-pounds for the Knights, pinning Gage Beal in just
1:36 and cutting the lead in half to 36-30. Matt Lovin did get a sudden victory
decision win, 4-2 over Heaven Fitch, but the win was not enough for the Knights to
overcome the deficit, and Uwharrie Charter hung on for a 36-32 victory.

The NCHSAA is committed to recognizing and upholding good sportsmanship throughout
the season. The 2019 winners of the North Carolina Farm Bureau Sportsmanship Awards
were Sergio Saldana from Uwharrie Charter and Colton Phillips of Robbinsville.
