Five Northern Michigan wrestlers took home Individual State Titles Saturday.  All of them came in Division 4 at the Palace of Auburn Hills.

Whittemore-Prescott Ryan's Prescott took home the title in the 285 pound weight class.  Prescott avenged a loss in last year's final 4-3.

Hesperia's Zack Yates pinned his opponent 59 seconds into the 119 pound matchup.  Yates finished 3rd in the state as a Freshman, 2nd as a Sophomore and has now won it all as a Junior.

The 125 pound final featured a pair of Northern Michigan wrestlers.  Mio's Zack Mack pinned Forest Area's Matthew Elliott in the 2nd Period.

At 171 pounds, St. Ignace's Galloway Thurston made it back-to-back State Titles.  His teammate Joe Osten won his 3rd career State Championship with a Technical Fall in the 215 pound weight class.
