Youth is being served at Mead where six of seven state qualifiers are juniors or younger.

And they'll be traveling without another youngster, state placer (and potential title contending sophomore) Tyler McLean, whose season ended prematurely with a knee injury.

"I don't know if it's the sophomore curse, but they all (seem) to go through adversity," said Panthers coach and Tyler's dad, Phil McLean.

He was referring back to a year ago when Jordan Rogers, state champion as a freshman, was sidelined the week of his sophomore Mat Classic by an emergency appendectomy.

Jeremy Golding, however, was untouched by the perceived jinx. Golding knocked off two-time state titlist Ephraim Aguilar of Graham-Kapowsin last year, 5-4 in overtime of the 125-pound finals, bringing home one of four Greater Spokane League titles (and 16 total among area wrestlers in all classifications).
