With the completion of the duals, wrestling programs now look ahead to the state tournament in Greensboro in another week. However, for individual wrestlers to get there, they will have to get by this weekend’s regionals, which are on tap starting today around the state.

The North Carolina High School Athletic Association individual regionals start this afternoon at host sites, with the consolation and championship rounds taking place Saturday afternoon and evening.

In each of the four classifications in the NCHSAA, the top four finishers advance to the state tournament next weekend at the Greensboro Coliseum. The 2A, 3A and 4A classes have four regionals — East, Mideast, Midwest and West — while the 1A schools have just two regionals — East and West.

Individuals at each regional qualified through a point system that factored in this season’s winning percentage from a minimum of 15 matches completed prior to the dual playoffs. Those who fell short of 15 matches had losses added to their records to determine qualifiers and seedings. Points also were added based on a wrestler’s participation and finish at last year’s state tournament. The top 16 scorers from each weight class in a region were then seeded according to the points received.

Along with the individual qualifiers, team tournament championships are on the line. At the 2A West Regional at West Wilkes High, 2A dual champion Fred T. Foard figures to be in the mix for the regional title. Also expected to contend is defending 2A West champion West Lincoln, which has four No. 1 seeds in the brackets. Both schools had wrestlers qualify for all 14 weight classes.

Bandys and Bunker Hill are among a few of the area conference schools that will go to the 2A Midwest Region at North Davidson High, as placements are determined by geography. Bunker Hill was the 2A Midwest Regional runner-up the last two years behind Central Academy, which won this regional a year ago and went on to claim the 2A state title.

A week after finishing in the final four in duals, St. Stephens will face a tough field at the 3A West Regional held at North Henderson High. The Indians and 2A West Champion Enka figure to be among the top contenders. St. Stephens is the defending 3A West champion.

South Caldwell and McDowell will compete at the 4A West Regional held at Hough High.

Here is a list of the schools from area conferences and the individual wrestlers scheduled to participate at regionals.
