It's been a long time coming for the Barnesville wrestling team - forty-seven years and counting. The Trojans are on their way to their first state tournament in program history.

The groundwork was laid last summer when the team received some lessons from Iowa's head coaches. It seems like the work has paid off, made even more impressive by the fact that Barnesville doesn't have any wrestlers ranked in the top 10. The Trojans face Kimball in the opening round Thursday morning at 9 AM.
