Here are some photos from last week’s IHSA state individual wrestling championships.
Mattoon capped a successful season in which the program:
• recorded the most medalists ever at three
• featured six wrestlers who won regional titles and three who earned sectional titles
• sent nine of its 10 wrestlers from regionals to sectionals
• sent six wrestlers to the state tournament
Two more Mattoon wrestlers came within one win of earning medals.
