This weekend, Montgomery Catholic Preparatory School head coach Coy Hunter and the Knights traveled to downtown Montgomery for the first-ever AHSAA South Super Sectional Wrestling Tournament at the Cramton Bowl Multiplex.
The Knights had five wrestlers get to at least the consolation quarterfinals, and two of those wrestlers qualified for the AHSAA State Championships which will be held in Huntsville at the end of this week (Friday and Saturday).

Freshman Zachary Van Alst won his third consecutive sectional championship, this time in the 113-pound weight class and will advance to Huntsville to vie for this third consecutive AHSAA state championship as the top seed. He will joined in Huntsville by a first-time qualifier, senior Alex Castanza who finished fourth in his weight class over the weekend.
Although only two qualified for state, the Knights had three other wrestlers who challenged for a spot but came up just a match short. Senior John Haynes reached the consolation semifinals, while Gabe Keating and Cameron Harris each reached the consolation quarterfinals.
