Marcellus sophomore Marie Butz won a state title at the inaugural girls' state wrestling championships Sunday in Adrian.

The wrestling event was open to girls who are members of a Michigan High School Athletic Association team and was held using the MHSAA rules.

Butz had a 6-14 record for the 2018-2019 season on the Wildcats wrestling team before pinning all three of her opponents Sunday on her way to claiming the 171-pound state title.

Butz defeated Cassie Enos, Reed City, to clinch the title.

Wildcats Head Coach Sam Adams said he believes that Butz state title is the first in school history.
