A pair of Wolverine Wrestling Club athletes are newly-crowned state champions.

Styler Blackwell and Chester Wilson each earned state titles Saturday at the NCWAY State Championships in Fayetteville, with Blackwell winning the Middle School 152 class and Wilson claiming the Middle School 145 class.

WWC’s Dominic Ramirez placed second in the 6U 40 class while Jadyn Virgil took fourth in the High School 182 class.

Blackwell outlasted Jacob Campos of BeastWorks Wrestling Club in the 152 final. Blackwell led 5-2 early in the third period before Campos scored a takedown in the final minute to cut the lead to 5-4. But Campos was penalized for stalling, and Blackwell scored a reversal just before the end of the match to seal the win.

Wilson swept through the 145 class, winning each match by pin.
