Former Wilson Central wrestler Zach Linton finished second in the NAIA Championships last week in Des Moines, Iowa, falling to No. 2 seed Charles Sharon of Campbellsville 7-3 in the 184-pound finals.

The Doane (Neb.) University sophomore, who won a state championship for Wilson Central in 2016, lost just one match against NAIA competition this season, winning the Great Plains Athletic Conference tournament with three pins. He’s already qualified for two NAIA Championships and is an All-American. He was named GPAC Wrestler of the Year.
