This past year there were at least 3 wrestlers that had a shot at the feat-Nick Simmons, Jesse Sundell of Ogden Iowa and Tom Clum of Colorado. Simmons was the only wrestler of the three that came away unscathed. Sundell was beaten late in the season for his first varsity loss but did manage to come back and win his 4th state title. Clum lost in the state HS finals to finish as a 3 time state champion with 1 loss in his career.
