The Woodland wrestling team reached the state duals finals for the seventh consecutive year Friday night with a 59-13 semifinal win over Ola High School.
The Wildcats will meet Buford at 4pm at the Macon Centreplex for the Class AAAAA state duals title.
Buford has wins over Arabia Mountain (84-0), Veterans (41-23), and Union Grove (30-27) on their way to the championship match.
Woodland defeated Harris County and Whitewater in the first two rounds.
Cass, who fell out of championship contention Thursday with a quarterfinal round loss to Union Grove, won a consolation match Friday over Ware County, 46-17, and will face Veterans in another consolation match Saturday morning at 8:30am.
