Mason had four wrestlers qualify for the state tourament due to their results in the region – 113lb Bryan Villegas, regional champion.; 145lb West Hagler, second place; 160lb Connor Murray third place and 170lb Nick Zaenger third place. At the state tournament in Salem, Va., Villegas (pictured) and Hagler placed fourth and fifth respectively.
