Winston-Salem Parkland ran its record to 41-0 and won its fifth straight North Carolina High School Athletic Association state wrestling dual team championship as it rolled over New Bern 52-12 at New Bern in the 4-A title match on Saturday.
Parkland earned three consecutive 3-A crowns from 2007-09 and then has won its last two at the 4-A classification.
New Bern closed the dual team campaign with a mark of 16-4.
In the 3-A championship, Orange built up a lead and held on to defeat defending champion Concord Jay Robinson 34-27 at Robinson. The Panthers thus reversed the outcome of last year's final in which Robinson had beaten Orange 37-35.
Orange remained unbeaten in dual team competition at 21-0 while Robinson slipped to 36-2.
Newport Croatan successfully defended its 2-A title in a championship rematch with Monroe Piedmont, scoring a 41-30 decision in Newport.
Austin Mackey, who wrestled at 140 pounds for Croatan in the final, was the match MVP. Croatan stayed unbeaten in dual team competition with a record of 18-0 while Piedmont lost for only the third time in 38 matches.
In the 1-A championship at West Wilkes, the host school won its second consecutive dual team state championship with a 36-32 victory over North Rowan.
West Wilkes had advanced to the finals with a Saturday afternoon 38-31 victory over Robbinsville in the Western Regional final while North Rowan had gotten past Dixon 36-29 to earn the berth in the finals as the East representative.
Mikey Wade of West Wilkes at 152 pounds was named the Most Valuable Wrestler of the 1-A championship. West finished dual team competition with a record of 19-3 while North Rowan was 19-4.
