The Bruins finished second in their pool, beating Paulding County 60-15, Rome 49-29 and McEachern 61-15. Northwest lost 50-24 to North Forsyth in its third pool dual.

In the dual for fifth place, Northwest lost 49-30 to host Etowah.

Northwest’s junior varsity team wrestled in an eight-team bracket and finished second.

The Bruins lost 48-34 to Brookwood and won 54-26 against North Forsyth. With a three-way tie in the pool, Northwest advanced as pool champion based on the tiebreakers of most pins and most near falls.

The Raiders forfeited four weight classes — 106, 132, 170 and 195 — due to injuries and illness, coach Michael Herndon said.

Omar Ruiz (126) and Austin Allen (182) each won all five of their matches and improved to 15-0 for the season.

Noah Bartenfield (113), Chris Rosas (120) and Tyler Brown (152) each went 4-1.
