This weekend, ten Monticello Junior High wrestlers attended the 1-4A Junior High State Tournament in Richfield.  At the end the two-day tournament, they earned a second place finish as a team in the 1A division. 

Three wrestlers earned individual hardware with

Shane Lewis finishing atop the podium at 73 pounds. Josh Wheeler earned a fifth place medal at 76 pounds and Zac Thayn earned a sixth place medal at 86 pounds.

Also wrestling hard for the team are Tyler Thayn, Tate Ramsay, Oakley Adams, Javlin Robison, Chandler Henderson, Darren Westcott and Tyson Wheeler. The team is coached by JJ Squires and Gentry Ramsay.

The tournament is unique as wrestlers from all four divisions (1-4A) make up each weight bracket, and there is no separation of classification. This makes for an exciting and very tough tournament.

At the end of the tournament, only six medals are given in each weight.

Team scores are then tallied and trophies are presented in each of the four classifications.
