Mike Murphy, North Providence, 103 pounds
He upset top-seeded Katelyn Bouyssou in the state semifinals and defeated Christian Hiebner of North Kingstown, 4-2, for the state title. "He is the first sophomore in school history to win states," said coach Richard Torti. "He has all the tools: speed, strength and determination. He's not afraid of anybody. As a sophomore, that's very uncommon."

Shaidai Lariviere, Cumberland, 112 pounds
A repeat first-team selection, he was 38-0 during the regular season and did not lose until the New Englands, where he finished third. His pin in the Rhode Island final launched the Clippers on their way to the state championship. "Shaidai is an extremely skilled wrestler. His technique is excellent. . . . He has a lot of speed, and he has a will to win," coach Steve Gordon said.

Shoneil Lariviere, Cumberland, 119 pounds
Shaidai's twin was unbeaten in Rhode Island, 32-2 overall in dual meets and fifth in the New Englands after losing to the eventual champion in the main draw. He won his second straight state title with a pin and earned his second consecutive first-team selection. "Shoneil is more of a power wrestler . . . He also has the will to win," coach Steve Gordon said.

Mike Meyers, Warwick Veterans, 125 pounds
The three-time first-team All-State selection defended his 125-pound titles at the Rhode Island and New England championships and was named the outstanding wrestler at each tournament. The Rhode Island Wrestling Coaches Association named him the outstanding wrestler in the state. Unbeaten for the last two years, his career record is 129-1.

Everett Desilets, Cranston West, 130 pounds
He was 45-1, earned his state championship with a 19-4 technical fall over Tim Terranova of Westerly, and finished second in the New Englands. "He was an extremely hard worker all year long. Every time he goes out there he has great competitive spirit and mental toughness. He's always confident in anything he does," coach Matt Claeson said.

Ricondo Cole, Cranston West, 135 pounds
He posted a 7-2 decision over Zach Ziobro of Mt. Hope in a final between undefeated wrestlers -- he was 23-0, Ziobro 25-0. He finished third at the New England Championships. "It's phenomenal how he continued to evolve . . . He's a cerebral wrestler and studies his opponents. The team gets to see him as a good athlete not because he's strong but because he's thinking," coach Matt Claeson said.

Patrick Conley, South Kingstown, 140 pounds
After beating Cory Giblin of Cranston West twice during the season, he had to rally in the last few seconds of his state final match to post an 11-10 decision. "Patrick did a lot of work in the off-season," coach James Barbera said. "He has a weird, funky style. He's very slippery. He wasn't even a varsity wrestler his first two years . . . so his success this year surprised me."

Seth Noon, South Kingstown, 145 pounds
After finishing third in the 2009 State Meet, Noon was among the favorites this year and won the title with an 8-4 decision over East Greenwich sophomore Stephen Jarrell. "I kind of knew he'd be in the hunt as a senior," coach James Barbera said. "He's a hard-nosed, tough kid. He works a lot in the off-season and has been on the varsity since he was a freshman."

Colin Cocaine, Coventry, 152 pounds
He knew his weight class would be challenging, but he opted to wrestle at 152 instead of 145, a wise decision because he defeated Taylor Caputo of Westerly, 8-0, in the state final. "He improved all over the place this year," coach Arthur Souza said. "He was the hardest worker in the room, a non-stop worker in the wrestlingroom. He was a pleasure to have."

Cory Shortt, Westerly, 160 pounds
After missing the 2009 season while recovering from reconstructive knee surgery for a football injury, he ended his R.I. wrestling career with an inspiring 7-2 decision over Nick Salois of Warwick Veterans in the state finals. "Cory was a natural," said coach Al Gaccione. "He always wanted to be the best and was always disappointed when he lost."

Cameron Glad, Cumberland, 171 pounds
His 7-5 victory over Ben Shalvey of Warwick Veterans in the state final clinched the 2010 championship for Cumberland and capped an undefeated season. "He's a power wrestler, and his technique improved 100 percent this year. He's solid and very strong for his weight class, and he is in excellent condition," coach Steve Gordon said.

Joshua Downing, Cranston East, 189 pounds
He pinned his way to victory in 15 dual meets and did it again in the state championship final, defeating Emmanuel Versailles of Central Falls. "Our end goal was the state championships, and he reached out and grabbed the gold ring," said coach Michael Penza. "He's not a natural wrestler. He's a natural athlete, but he really had to work hard to compete at that level."

Cesar Sanchez, Pilgrim, 215 pounds
He was undefeated in dual meets for three years. "He doesn't know how good he is. He's a beast who does not stop when he gets on the mat," coach Tom O'Connor said. "He's an unbelievable kid all around. He's always smiling. No one ever sees him upset. We had 40 kids on the team because Cesar was there."

Phil Colasante, Ponaganset, 285 pounds
He defeated Shane Smith of Narragansett, 4-1, for the state championship. "He's a great kid who worked hard all year lifting and practicing. . . . It's nice to know when he steps on the mat you have a good chance for a W. He pushed himself and his teammates. He made his teammates better," coach Troy Lambert said.
