The Truckee wrestling program was named Nevada Interscholastic Activities Association Class 3A Academic State Champions at last weekend’s state championship tournament.

The Wolverines worked to post a combined 3.44 GPA in the classroom.

Truckee’s lone senior wrestler, Kevin Castellanos, wrestled at the state tournament in Mesquite, marking the first time since 2013 a wrestler from the program has qualified for state.

Castellanos lost to the No. 1 seed from the Southern League to open the tournament, and then was topped in the consolation quarterfinals. Castellanos led Truckee this season with a 27-11 record.
