Josh Corriell - 171

(4-0, 1pin, 25 team pts, Champion)

BACK

Josh Corriell becomes the 5th state champion at Ki-Be. The only points scored on Josh in the tournament were on escapes. Josh was really never threatened in any of his matches and was not going to be denied his title. His best move during the tournament was a firemans which he used almost at will on his opponents. Not only did Josh defeat all comers in the 2A ranks, but the 4A champion had been a victim of Josh's attack during the season. Josh looked determined and showed an aggressiveness that carried him to the title. This was a great way for Josh to finish off his Highschool career. Josh went 1-2 at regionals as a freshman, was 0-2 at state as a sophomore and placed 8th at state last season. This is the kind of improvement all future wrestlers at Ki-Be should try to attain. His 37 wins this season are a school record.
