It wasn’t the way Colin Stevens wanted to end his high school wrestling career, but the Trigg County senior will go into the record books as the most decorated Wildcat wrestler in school history.
Stevens lost to Union County’s Steven Little 4-2 in sudden death overtime in the championship of the 170-pound class Saturday at the KHSAA State Wrestling Tournament. He finishes his senior season with a 43-3 record – all three losses to Little.
Stevens has reached the metal podium four times in his five trips to the state tourney. He finished sixth in the 152 class as a freshman. He was third at 160 as a sophomore and was state runner-up at 182 last year. He is the only Trigg wrestler in program history to record three top-3 finishes in his career. Colin, his father Ralph, brother Aaron, and uncle Homer all have top-4 finishes for Trigg County at the state tourney.
