The Orland Park-based Contender Wrestling Club had its own wrecking crew as Seth Mendoza, Ryan Hinger and Madden Parker combined to go 11-0 and claim Illinois Kids Wrestling Federation state championships earlier this month in Rockford.

It was Mendoza’s third state title while Hinger and Parker each won their first titles. Austin Reading claimed third and Dylan Weber fifth to lead the team to an eighth-place finish out of 172 teams.
