A major accomplishment in Wyoming High School Wrestling is to win a state championship and a Ron Thon Tournament title. Cheyenne Central's Meadow King is among that elite group and she won her 2nd Ron Thon championship at 145 pounds in Riverton.

Saturday's championship match with Kelly Walsh's Skylee Gangwish was a grueling, back-and-forth battle that ended with King posting a pin at the 5:56 mark. Nothing is easy at the Ron Thon and King showed a tremendous amount of fortitude in the match. She has not wrestled all that much this season as she has been rehabilitating from an injury. It's been a challenging season for King but proved that hard work pays off. Back in 2023, King took the top of the podium at the Ron Thon at 145 with a win over Kaylie Julander of Kemmerer in the final.

She also took the top of the podium at the very first sanctioned girls' state tournament back in February by pinning her way to the 145-pound championship. She beat Star Valley's Cara Andrews in the final and finished the season with a mark of 23-5.

We had a chance to chat with one of the most accomplished wrestlers in the state and he was more than happy with her effort in Riverton over the weekend.
