Mathis, McGeough returning to state wrestling tournament

This makes back to back state wrestling appearances for Mathis, who placed last year as a junior.

After losing in the finals, 165-pound junior Quinn McGeough won in a wrestle back to place second and advance to state for the second time.

McGeough also felt confident heading into districts, despite suffering a shoulder injury a week ago. “I knew I still had what it takes, even if I was a little bit in pain. I knew making it to state was a lot more important than the little bit of pain you’re going to feel for a couple minutes on the mat,” he said.
