The Indiana High School wrestling tournament begins this weekend,. when the sectionals are held.

At Penn, the Kingsmen enter the tournament ranked fifth in the state in the latest coaches poll and are poised to make a run at the program's second state title.

Penn Head Coach Brad Harper said, "Mentality is a state run. It's a mindset. You know we're going to go out and give max effort. That's kind of been our motto, max effort and push the pace and see how far you can push yourself in every match. I'm excited, I mean these kids believe it, they've got the confidence and they're ready for whoever steps on the mat with them. It's going to be exciting to see how far this group of student athletes can go."
