Northwestern wrestler Matt Wheeler is having an outstanding junior season.
Wheeler capped the first postseason weekend of individual wrestling with the Section 3 championship at 120 pounds.
His 6-2 decision in the championship match moved his record to 27-2 this season and Wheeler entered this weekend’s District 10 Class AA championship tournament as one of the top seeds in his weight class. He received a first-round bye for winning the section and is automatically in the quarterfinals. During the section tournament, he picked up a 59-second pin in the semifinals to wrestle for the title.
