Senior Lee Carlson works over Logan View’s Martin Valencia during the 126 pound district title match Saturday afternoon in Albion. Carlson will take a perfect 44-0 record to this weekend’s state meet, following three big wins at Boone Central High School.

The Sutton wrestling team opened the C-2 District meet on fire, having all but one of their nine wrestlers reach at least the consolation semifinal round, but a tough final two rounds would cut the number of Mustangs from eight possible qualifiers to a very strong group of six state meet qualifiers.

Led by senior Lee Carlson’s district title in the 126 pound class, Sutton would capture the fourth-place spot in the team race, scoring 117 team points. David City outscored second place Logan View 235.5-196.5, while Wood River finished 10 points ahead of the Mustangs.

The district title for Carlson at 126 didn’t come without a challenge, after a first round bye, Carlson disposed of Twin Rivers’ Beau Zoucha in 1:13, before having to deal with a pesky Daniel Escandon of Gibbon in the semifinal round.
