WARRENSVILLE — The Ashe County Middle School Bulldogs are one match away from capping off an unbeaten regular season after a pair of big wins last week.

The wrestling team traveled to West Wilkes and came away with a 63-32 win. This was the first time in eight years that the Bulldogs had beaten West Wilkes.

On Friday night, ACMS had their final home match of the season. All eighth graders were recognized prior to the match as they will be moving on to the high school next season.

Along with the eighth graders, the young Mat Monster grapplers also had a chance to be recognized in front of the home crowd for their success this season.

After a slow start in the first three weight classes, the Bulldogs dominated Forbush on the way to a 79-18 victory.

The Bulldogs are scheduled to wrestle their final regular season match on Monday at Central Wilkes before gearing up for the conference tournament on Saturday at East Wilkes.
