The Kankakee Valley will be well represented at this weekend’s state wrestling finals. John Glenn senior Cody Strange (39-8) and Culver senior Jeremiah Harvey (41-4) advanced out of the Merrillville semi-state last Saturday. Cody defeated Davon Alwine of South Bend Clay 4-2 in the consolation round to take 3rd place in the 160lb weight class. Meanwhile, Jeremiah continued his dominance of the 285lb weight class  by defeating Damon Howe of Plymouth 8-4 to take 1st place.

Cody will be taking on Heritage Hills senior Tyler Rickenbaugh (47-4) in the first round at state, while Jeremiah will take on Huntington North junior Andrew Mason (37-9).
