It was a historic year for Sullivan wrestling.

The Eagles won the Four Rivers Conference championship, tied for 10th in the MSHSAA Class 2 team standings and had its first-ever state wrestling champion.

For that, the school has earned two of the three top awards in this year’s Missourian All-Area team, voted on by area coaches and media members.

Evan Shetley, a senior at 182 pounds, captured the Class 2 state title with a 44-1 record. He was the area’s lone state champion this season and was picked as the Missourian boys wrestler of the year.

Sullivan Head Coach Matt Peregoy was the selection as coach of the year.

For the second season, a girls wrestling team also was picked. The wrestler of the year was Washington’s first-ever state medalist, junior Mia Reed.

Reed was the only local wrestler to reach the medal stand, finishing third at 110 pounds in the state’s only class. She went 38-3 this season.

All wrestlers who qualified for the state meet, or earned conference honors were eligible for selection. Coaches added deserving wrestlers to the list.
