Malad earned 149 points to claim the big win. Firth finished second with 147 points. Challis claimed the third place trophy with 136 points.

It would take every one of those wrestlers and every win they could muster, along with every pin and major decision, to help them claim the State Championship. Malad and Firth went back and forth the entire weekend. It came down to the final match of the tournament. Continue reading
