The story of Lake Forest’s Barrington Sectional wrestling tournament was written on Corey Knudsen’s face.

Knudsen, a senior 145-pounder, was all smiles after he qualified for state for the first time, beating Rockford East’s Gunnar Morris in a thrilling 3-1 bout in the consolation semifinals.

When the final buzzer sounded, Knudsen’s supporters erupted with cheers on the sidelines. As he walked off the mat, he was congratulated by friends, family and even wrestlers from other schools.
