Two more state champs!
Congratulations to brothers Jonathan C. ('22) and Jacob C. ('19) for their State Championship wins in wrestling this weekend! Jonathan won his match after the ligaments in his ankle were severely torn in the opening seconds. He had the ankle taped and fought on to a 5-2 victory. Inspired by his brother, Jacob went out and won the 170-pound state title with a 4-0 decision.
