Hats off to wrestlers from Albert Lea High School, NRHEG School and United South Central School who competed over the weekend at the Minnesota state wrestling tournament in St. Paul.

Though not all made it to the podium, these wrestlers have shown ongoing hard work and determination, and that is something to be proud of.

A special recognition to Albert Lea senior Zach Glazier, who came away with a second state championship, this time in the 182-pound weight class; USC senior Blake Legred, who took second in the 138-pound class; and Albert Lea senior Nic Cantu, who finished in third at 120 pounds.
