Zackery Wilkins, second from left, is the first freshman in Mt. Juliet history to place in the state wrestling tournament when he placed sixth at 126 pounds earlier this month, finishing a 51-9 season.
“I’m looking forward to the days to come with Zackery,” said coach Brad Mattingly, middle.
Sophomore Danyon Edens, second from right, finished sixth at 152 pounds, finishing the season 43-15. He is one of three Golden Bear 10th-graders to place at state.
“Danyon is a leader by example and has a great work ethic,” Mattingly said.
