— The Indian Land Wrestling Club had 10 wrestlers compete in the SCYWA South Carolina State Championships recently and nine finished in the top four.

The tournament was held March 15 in Lexington.

The club has wrestlers in kindergarten through middle school on the roster, including several from North Carolina. Among the top winners, Foster Lambert won the state championship at 75 pounds in the 9-10 age bracket. Aidan Sheesley battled hard for second place in a round robin style bracket.

Third place finishers were Clint Creech, Jace Hodge, Josh Horn, Austin Ross and Max Yegge. Spencer Cox and Drew Andres took fourth place. Nathan Wardy, a first year wrestler, didn't medal, but he did win a match to gain valuable experience. The team is coached by Troy Yegge.
