By mikeb Published: March 10, 2009

Perry seniors Sam White and Nick Heflin will continue their academic and wrestling careers at Big Ten colleges, Panthers coach Brent McBurney said.

White and Heflin each won a state title this past Saturday and helped Perry finish second as a team in the Division I team standings.

White, a University of Illinois recruit, finished the season with a state title at 125 pounds and a 41-1 record. He also won a state title at 103 pounds as a sophomore and was a state runner-up at 112 as a junior.

Heflin, an Ohio State University recruit, finished the season with a state title at 171 pounds and a 42-2 record. He was a state runner-up at 152 as a junior.

"I think they will be successful in college," McBurney said. "Their style of wrestling is sound and will help them compete in the Big Ten."
