"I wanted to get here and we got here," said the 6-foot forward after the loss on Feb. 19. "I'm not happy that we lost, but we got here.

Dunbar finished third with 119 points, and Edmondson took fourth with 89.Last year, Poly moved up from second place to the top spot when tournament officials found a mathematical mistake after the tournament.

"I'm supposed to go to states this year and take it all." In yesterday's 49-12 rout at city rival Poly (8-2 overall, 7-1 league), Price looked like the city's best hope to become only its second state wrestling champion, pinning his 20th opponent in his 16th straight win and improving to 22-2.
