Fourth Place medalist is 58 lb Luke Egan, 7/8 age group. Third Place medalist is 72 lb Blake Peasley, 7/8 age group. Second Place medalists include 61 lb Chayson Eberspeaker, 6 & under age group; 148 lb Lucus Pienton, High School division and 55 lb Josh Vasquez, 9/10 age group. 2016 State Champion is 55 lb Drew Moro, 6 & under age group.

A wrestling season is built on preparation, determination, drive and heart,” said Head Coach Dave Andrus. “It is difficult to achieve personal success without the support of each wrestler’s family. Every wrestling family knows you give it your all. A season is not defined on wins and losses but rather watching your athletes move in a positive direction. For a coach, it is the greatest joy to have an athlete run off the mat and into your arms after achieving their goal,” he added.
