Smith was the state's top-ranked AAA wrestler at 145 pounds last season and went on to earn GW's first championship since 1994. He also set the school record for wins, finishing with a 48-5 mark. Smith is a wide receiver and defensive back on the Patriots' football team, which advanced to today's quarterfinals.
"It was one of my main goals,'' said Smith of wrestling at the next level. "I've already got my goals set to qualify for the NCAA tournament. We'll see how it goes. I still have another season and I'll be training for that. I've been staying in the gym. The key to it is staying humble and training hard.''
Evans earned all-state honors in 2011 and 2012 at the state golf tournament.
