Jackson will send five wrestlers to this week's state meet as they finished among the top four during Saturday's Class 3 sectional meet at Parkway South High School in St. Louis.

Brock Howard was first at 125 pounds as he improved his record to 43-1.

Cody Rouse (140) and Matt Kahle (189) placed second. Their records are 42-3 and 38-8.

Kremer Rampley (145) and Greg Ludwig (152) finished second, improving to 41-5 and 29-18.

"We probably wrestled the very best we could," Jackson coach Steve Wachter said. "It was an awfully tough sectional."

Blake Ulrich and Kamden Rampley failed to qualify.
