ROCKY MOUNT -- Charles B. Aycock's Zack Howard and Eastern Wayne's Quadrick Williams are headed to the season-ending N.C. High School Athletic Association Class 3-A state wrestling championships.

The sixth-seeded Howard, a junior, prevailed in four consolation-round matches and claimed the bronze medal (third place) at 126 pounds.

Seeded second at 160 pounds, Williams bounced back after a semifinal-round loss to third-seeded John Ellis of Havelock. Williams claimed third place after Northern Nash's Kendal Hamilton couldn't compete due to an injury.

Rocky Mount High School played host to the east 3-A regional.
