BOSSIER CITY – The sport of wrestling is a grueling, grind-it-out test of wills reserved for the strongest of men.

Lakeside’s Mason Sparks and DJ Harvey proved themselves to be amongst the state’s strongest grinders, bringing home the second and third-ever wrestling state championships in Lakeside’s brief wrestling history over the weekend inside the Centurylink Center.

Harvey, competing in the 280-pound division, defeated Evangel’s Tre White 3-1 in overtime to claim his title, while Sparks, competing in the 220-pound division, wore down the division’s defending state champion, Eric Hamrick of De La Salle, 7-4
