Akron-Westfield seniors Sebastian Berg, Daniel Martinsen and Montana Jackson all made it to the State Individual Wrestling Tournament to cap their careers but Jackson gained the only win.
“They had some tough draws but everyone who makes it to state is tough,” said A-W Head Coach Dustin Meinen. “It was special for them to end their careers at state.”
