    Four WCS student-athletes are bringing home State wrestling titles, and two of those are repeat State champions.

    Summit High senior Jarvis Little is the first, three-time State champion in the school's history. He took first place in the Class AA 132 category at the Tennessee Secondary School Athletic Association (TSSAA) High School Wrestling Championships February 23-24

    "Jarvis was able to achieve this goal by putting in countless hours of practice and traveling the country and finding the toughest competition," said SHS wrestling coach Pete Miller. "He started wrestling in the sixth grade."

    Summit High senior Landon Desselle won his second State title in the Class AA 144 category.

    "Landon earned everything through hard work and dedication to the sport," Miller said. "He happened to be around as a young wrestler and watched his older brother, Kobey, in the earlier years of Summit High wrestling success. He grew up wanting to be a multiple-time State champion."

    Summit High junior Brayden Leach is a first-time State champion after winning the Class AA 150 category.

    "Brayden has been working for his first State title since he fell just short last season," Miller said. "I can already tell you he can't wait to get back to work preparing to win his second State title next season."

    Nolensville High senior Tre McTorry also finished his high school wrestling career with a State title in the Class AA 175 category. His coach is Johnnie Melzoni.

    "Working with Tre this year, and the last couple of years, has been a joy," Melzoni said. "He is not only a gifted athlete, but he is also a great student and a terrific leader for his teammates. The coaching staff and I are very proud of Tre and his accomplishments and wish him the absolute best as he moves onto college athletics."

    WCS students also competed in the TSSAA Duals Wrestling Championships February 3.
