N&O wrestling rankings: Corinth Holders, South Granville move up

This week's Millbrook-Broughton showdowns were not limited to basketball.

On Wednesday night, the teams were 31-all and needed tie-breaking criteria to determine Millbrook was the winner, based on bouts won.

The Wildcats still are fourth in The News & Observer area rankings, but there were big changes behind them.

Unbeaten Corinth Holders jumped to No. 9 after a 42-25 win against No. 15 Western Harnett, which had been eighth. Also rising was No. 11 South Granville, which defeated No. 14 Chatham Central 43-31. Chatham Central had been seventh.

Many area teams will compete Friday and Saturday at the WRAL Invitational, hosted by No. 10 Athens Drive. On Monday and Tuesday, No. 8 Cary will host the Mark Adams Holiday Classic, and No. 7 Chapel Hill will host the Tiger Classic.
