Three West Fargo state champion wrestlers recently were ranked in USA Wrestling Magazine's Top 30.

Jordan Shearer is tied for No. 30 in 103-pound All-Class category. Shearer, who will enter the fall as a freshman, is a two-time individual state champion and has twice been named All-Conference with the Packers.

Angelo Shepherd also earned a state title last year, his first with West Fargo but third overall. USA Wrestling ranks the freshman 125-pounder 17th in the Freshman/Sophomore class.

Last, but certainly not least, is West Fargo captain Preston Lehmann. The state title holder and incoming junior is ranked No. 24 in the 171-pound All-Class category, but also is No. 2 in the Freshman/Sophomore class. Lehmann has been named All-EDC for two straight years.
