Three Auburn Junior High wrestlers have qualified for the IESA Class A State Finals at DeKalb by placing in the top four at the East Peoria Sectional held Saturday.

Auburn had two Sectional champions in Joey Ruzic at 90 pounds and Joe Barrow at 135. They will be joined at State by Quinten Chizmar, who was third at 100. All three are 8th graders.

This will be the fourth straight year Ruzic has qualified for State and he won the 80 pound title last year as a 7th grader competing for Springfield St. Agnes.
