Hickory Creek Middle School eighth grader Zach Lamonto has made a steady rise up the wrestling ranks.

Lamonto just missed state as a sixth grader. He qualified as a seventh grader but fell one win short of making the
podium.

This season, he didn’t only stand on the podium - he stood on top.

Lamonto won the Illinois Elementary School Association Class AA 145-pound title on March 9 at Northern Illinois University’s Convocation Center in DeKalb.
