No. 5 River Hill at States: Each of the past three years, River Hill senior Sebastian Ames came to Cole Field House for the state wrestling tournament and watched his teammates chase a spot on the podium.
This year, Ames is helping lead the Hawks' charge to a 4A-3A state tournament title.
"Last year, sitting here, I couldn't believe I'd be wrestling in the semifinals," said Ames, who scored an overtime takedown to defeat Northwest's Jeff Moreno, 3-1, in the quarterfinals. "It's awesome, I'm excited. Hopefully we can do what we need to do."
