Ramone Lawson, Javar Godette, Michael Hutchinson, Tyler Bullock, Howie Baldree, Chandler Day, Zachariah Drysdale, Jace Dedmon, Destin Floyd, Dominick Madden and Corey Paley won at least one match for the Rams.

New Bern’s DeAndre Jones, at 195 pounds, won all eight of his matches. The senior, who was a state runner-up last year, is unbeaten on the season and has yet to be taken to the mat.

“DeAndre is having an incredible year,” Yezarski said. “He beat the kid from Jack Britt who was third in the state last year.

“He does everything we ask him to do. He is a hard worker, great person and is having a great year.”

Drew Thome, at 220 pounds, won five matches and Garrett Phifer won four.

Jacob Smith, Eric Cabingas, Cedric Boyd, Daquan Green, Wilson Bunn, Antonio Creigo, Josh Pace, Nick Morris, Jurant Graham, Patrick Laureigh, Tyquan Baucom, Jeremy Simpson and Josh Hawkins won individual matches for the Bears.

“I was disappointed in our effort (on Friday), but (Saturday) I was pleased with our effort,” Yezarski said. “Attitude and effort is what I preach to this team and I think we are learning how to compete.
