The Fred T. Foard wrestling team is off to the races ringing in the new year and decade valiantly in tri-match action against Lincolnton and Crest on Thursday, January 2.

The Tigers’ dominant work against Crest -- winning 75-4 -- and against the Wolves -- winning 56-12 -- puts them at 21-0 on the season.

This match-up was its first contest since its TigerLand Classic on Saturday, December 21, 2019.

A monumental moment from the tri-match was junior Landon Foor’s milestone. The 2-time state champ has now won 100 consecutive matches and remains unbeaten on the year.

Foor (182-pound class) ousted Crest’s Lucas Russell and Wolves’ Elijah Powell via fall.

Freshman Brock Carey, the son of Tigers’ head coach Mike Carey, put a stamp on his first matches of 2020, as well. Carey defeated both of his opponents via technical falls which awarded his team five points in each match.

Carey obtained these victories over Crest’s Coleman Self and Lincolnton’s Matthew Davis -- both in the 106-pound class. He is currently tied for the team record of most consecutive technical falls with Ben Pitts (2012-13) at three.

The Tigers' (21-0) next set of matches is at the Adidas Duals on Saturday at 9 a.m. which features Concord, Cox Mill, Hickory Ridge, Hopewell, Weddington, Northern Guilford and the Central Academy of Technology and Arts.
