The Gouverneur Wildcats have their sixth New York State wrestling champion. Carter Baer, a sophomore and the son of Wildcat Wrestling Coach Joel Baer, upset top seeded Brady Worthing, who entered the state championship match with a record of 45-0, and was the defending New York State champ at 132 pounds, by a 6-4 decision to claim the 138-pound Division II championship at the New York State Public High School Athletic Association (NYSPHSAA) Wrestling Championships, last weekend, in Albany.

Carter joins John Minckler (2004), Josh Denesha (2005-06), David Perrigo (2006-07), Dillon Stowell (2013) and Hunter Ayen (2013) in the elite group of state wrestling champs from Gouverneur.
