PC Senior Beau Wood went 21-0 to finish the season as the  NSAA Class C 195 wrestling champion. When introduced for the championship match, Wood wore an anti-bullying shirt that said “Stand for the Silent.” Wood’s family was all cheers as he took the final match for the gold, and Wood took the time to thank the one who got him there. State wrestling story is here. Emilio Perez placed sixth in 285.
