The Alaska Division 1 wrestling team championship is returning to the interior. The Lathrop Malemutes won their fourth state championship in school history on Saturday at the Alaska Airlines Center in Anchorage. It was their first state title since 2001. Lathrop edged out 2016 state champion Colony by only two points, 320 to 318.

On top of Lathrop's two individual state champions, two state champions were crowned from Monroe Catholic High School. Riley Rust and Tanner Clark both wear a Rams' singlet but practice with Lathrop. Subsequently, Rust and Clark made history as the first athletes to bring state titles back to Monroe.

The Bethel Warriors were crowned division two state champions, while Mt. Edgecumbe claimed the women's title. Full results below...
