Maddie Ripley of Oceanside took a step toward winning a second Class B state championship by winning the 113-pound division at the South regional Saturday at Morse High in Bath.

After advancing with falls in the quarterfinals and semifinals, Ripley earned a 1-0 decision over Keygan Boucher of Mountain Valley in the final.

Defending state champion Wells also had three individual champions and easily won the team title with 216 points, as 10 of its wrestlers qualified for next weekend’s state meet at Mountain Valley High in Rumford. Calvin Chase earned a 4-3 decision over Sean Bonzagni of Morse at 126, Alex Albright got a 4-1 win over Joey Fusco of Fryeburg Academy at 144, and Nathan Malloy pinned Wesley Baltrus of Mountain Valley at 285.
