Congratulations to the Cadets wrestling team, which added to its remarkable run over the last four years by bringing home the fourth-place trophy from the Missouri Class 5 championship on Saturday at Mizzou Arena in Columbia.
The Cadets, who had won back-to-back state titles, now have two championships, one second-place finish (2007) and one fourth-place finish in a four-year span that will go down as one of the most impressive in school history.
The fourth-place finish was fueled by six wrestlers who earned top-five finishes and spots on the medal stand.
Freshman Santino Robinson won the state title at 113 pounds and finished his season with a 35-4 record.
Sophomore Jack Darrah finished second at 182 pounds and finished 32-5.
Junior Vincent Zerban, who won a state title as a sophomore, finished third at 160 pounds and went 35-5.
Senior Alex Flerlage (120 pounds), junior Lucas White (170) and senior Luke Ebers (195) all finished fifth.
