Two of South Dakota's top wrestlers could meet in the finals of the Gregory tournament today.

Wagner's Robert Kokesh and Webster's Logan Storley have a combined six state championships in their high school careers, and presumably will make the 171-pound championship today in Gregory.

Kokesh, a senior who recently signed to the University of Nebraska, won the 160-pound state championship as a junior and the 145-pound state championship as a sophomore. Kokesh went undefeated as a junior and lost only one match as a sophomore.

Storley, a junior, has won the state championship each year for the past four years. He's on pace to match a feat only one other wrestler in the state has ever accomplished: winning the state championship six times in his high school career.

According to Kokesh, the two are "very good friends." They met during a trip at the national tournament in Virginia Beach, Va., two summers ago when they both won the tournament at their respective weight classes.
