SALEM, Va. (WDBJ) -- The Salem Civic Center was a packed house this weekend for the VHSL state wrestling championships. Mats wall to wall, for three classes of competition.

It took all of two minutes and 59-seconds for the two time state champ to prove his moves with the pin, hoping all the extra work this year will result in a third straight state title.

"More combination wrestling, putting three, four, five moves together instead of just shooting one shot or something. It means a lot to me honestly, as much work as I've put into it, it's good to get something out of it," Nininger said. "It's a good feeling to win a state title so it's all worth it. My goal ever since I've been a little kid is to win four state titles, so you gotta win three before you can win four so that's the plan."
