It could be a big weekend for Lugoff-Elgin senior Noah North who will be gunning for his second straight individual state championship in wrestling. He will compete in the individual semis this Saturday at Chapin High School.
Noah won the individual title in 2016 in the 145-pound weight class and has been competing in the 152-pound class this year.
As a team, Lugoff-Elgin advanced to the Class 4A Lower State Championship where the Demons lost a hard-fought matchup against Chapin.
Lugoff-Elgin head wrestling coach Ted Monroe oversees a program with 50 total state championships on its resume, which includes team and individual titles. North could be #51 Saturday which would make him the all-time winningest wrestler for the Demons.
In the classroom, North excels there with a 4.2 grade point average. He hasn't settled on a college yet, but does plan on majoring in mathematics.
