FORTVILLE — The Marauder Wrestling Club flexed some muscle during the Indiana State Wrestling Association’s 2016 Folkstyle State meet earlier this month.

The club took 11 wrestlers to the ISWA state tournament at Warren Central on March 12 and placed 56th overall out of 272 teams.

Three boys wrestlers placed in the state, including one weight-class champion, and Sierra Pienkowski was a runner-up in the girls state tournament.
