John Altieri, Warwick Vets, 106 pounds
The state champ at 103 as a freshman had another strong year. He took a 36-3 record into the 106-pound final, which he won on an 11-0 major decision. "He's just a strong kid. He lifts. . . . He listens. He'll probably move up one weight class next year," coach Mike Nappa said.

Ebed Jarrell, East Greenwich, 113 pounds
When two tough opponents failed to compete in the statetournament for various reasons, he seized the opportunity and won the title, 11-0. His record was 28-4. He is also ranked No. 5 in the nation in judo, said his coach, Joe Amato. "He keeps going allyear. He's a plugger," Amato said.

Nate Colicci, Warwick Vets, 120 pounds
He posted a 43-5 record en route to the championship final and then defeated Lincoln's Alex D'Aloisio, 9-1. Coach Mike Nappa says Colicci "is always in shape and is so intent on winning. It's hard to get inside on him because he uses his throws." He learned the throws at judo school.

Joao Vicente, East Providence, 126 pounds
The 125-pound champion in 2011, he was 43-1 this year and earned his second title with a pin of North Kingstown's Connor Hayward. "He's an overachiever in everything he's done. He sets goals. He's the hardest worker I've ever had. He's a rare breed," coach Tom Galligan said.

Mike Murphy, North Providence, 132 pounds
The 2010 state champion at 125 returned to the winner's circle with a 5-3 overtime victory against top-seeded Serge Bouyssou of Cranston West. Murphy was 33-2 this winter. "He's probably the best wrestler I've had in 19 years of coaching," Richard Torti said.

Christian LaBrie, Exeter/West Greenwich, 138 pounds
He defeated Jon Maccini of Cumberland, 5-2, and improved to 42-1 for the season. His twin bother Andrew is the 145-pound champion, and their father, Dwayne, is their coach. "They leave nothing out there. They are very focused," Dwayne said.

Andrew LaBrie, Exeter/West Greenwich, 145 pounds

After upsetting top-seeded Erik Travers of Cumberland in the semifinals, he pinned Justin Caparco of Johnston for the title and improved to 41-3.


Stephen Jarrell, East Greenwich, 152 pounds
A fierce competitor, he ended his career with two state championships. He won at 145 pounds in 2011 and finished an undefeated season (30-0) this year with a 12-2 major decision over Max Carlsten of Cumberland.

Geroge Schmeider, Warwick Vets, 160 pounds
Schmeider was 44-2 and Michael Gallagher of Narragansett 44-1 when they met for the state championship. Schmeider prevailed, 6-3, in the third overtime. "He has a unique style that's hard to practice for, a lot of side headlocks and throws," coach Mike Nappa said.

Devin Hurst, Warwick Vets, 170 pounds
A year ago, coach Mike Nappa told him to get into the weight room. He wrestled at 125 as a junior and 170 as a senior. "He started from the day we got done. I thought he'd get to 140, his natural weight," Nappa said. Hurst won the state title with a 10-0 major decision over Justin Zeramby of North Kingstown.

Nick Salois, Warwick Vets, 182 pounds
Runner-up as a sophomore and the 171-pound state champ as a junior, Salois was undefeated (37-0) through the statechampionships and won the 182-pound title with a 9-1 major decision over Matt Massotti of North Providence. "He's one of the strongest kids in the state," coach Mike Nappa said.

Tom LaCroix, Cumberland, 195 pounds
His 12-4 victory at 195 pounds clinched the team statechampionship for Cumberland and improved his record to 39-0. "He's extremely quick for a heavyweight," coach Steve Gordon said. "He has great legs, and he has length. He has a million ways to put someone on his back."

Anthony Zambarano, North Providence, 220 pounds
He took a 30-5 record into the championship match against Jack Ryan of Barrington and prevailed, 5-3, in overtime, avenging a loss during the season. "He never placed in the state tournament and this year won it all. He had an unbelievable season," coach Richard Torti said.

Jonah Aurelio, East Providence, 285 pounds
The heavyweight champion as a sophomore, Aurelio defended his title by pinning Will Sturgis of La Salle at 3:59. He improved his record to 43-1. "Last year I called him an immovable force, and that's what he is. You try to push him, and he doesn't move," coach Tom Galligan said.
