    WILMINGTON —  Seven West Brunswick wrestlers won titles Saturday, Jan. 30, in the Mideastern 3A/4A Conference championships.

    Those victories nearly won the Trojans the team title, helping them score 267 points — two points fewer than eventual champion Laney.

    West coach Jimmy Caraway was ebullient about his team’s performance.

    “We didn’t have any first-round matches, so (Laney) made up a lot of points in the first-round matches. That’s the way the ball bounces sometimes. Laney has a good team.”
