High School Sports

WCIA — Urbana wrestler Luke Luffman is coming back to the area with a national championship. The rising senior won the 220-pound United States Marine Corps/USA Wrestling Cadet Freestyle national title in Fargo, N.D. on Tuesday.

Luffman has had a busy month, returning just last week after an international trip to Croatia to wrestle with the United States Greco Cadet World Team. The Illini commit finished 7th in the event before turning his attention to the meet in Fargo. Luffman is a two-time defending state champion in Illinois.
