No. 24 UNC wrestling wins three of four at South Beach Duals, including a top-10 upset

The No. 24 North Carolina wrestling team flew south this winter to Deerfield Beach, Fla., and spent its break facing off against some of the top talent in the country at the South Beach Duals. Head coach Coleman Scott has never shied away from heavy competition, so UNC ended its year in signature fashion — with two of its four opponents for the weekend being ranked in the top ten. UNC won three of four duals and improved its overall record to 5-4.
