BYRON (WREX) -

The Byron and Dakota wrestling programs enjoyed a successful Saturday in Champaign at the IHSA individual wrestling finals, and returned to the region to homecoming crowds.

Byron's Brady Wilsie and Nolan Baker returned to the Tigers' territory each sporting 44-0 records and gold medals, while Jacob Elsbury brought back a bronze medal at state. Dakota's Alec Henze, Greg Krulas, and Nate Olsen each won gold for the Indians at state, while Drew Wenger earned silver in his weight class in the 1-A finals.

The IHSA dual wrestling sectionals begin this week before ISU hosts the state team finals.
