Trego had one wrestler who competed in the State Wrestling Tournament on February 23-24 in Hays.

Dillon Dunn wrestled his way from the backside of the bracket to medal. Dunn lost his first match in overtime by decision against Charlie Nordquist of Marion. He won his next three matches by decision against Christophe King of Oskaloosa, Dane Whalen of Osage City, and Collin Rossillon of Perry-Lecompton. Wrestling for the third place match, Dunn lost by fall to Charlie Nordquist of Marion.   

This loss placed Dunn in the match for fifth and sixth place where he faced Adrian Gerber of Chaparral.  Gerber defeated Dunn in a 2-5 decision.  However, Dunn wrestled very well as a sophomore and earned a sixth place medal.
