Moline junior wrestler Adarios Jones captured the 285-pound junior division title at the freestyle state tournament in Champaign on Sunday. Jones beat out 13 wrestlers for the title.

"I feel I wrestled pretty well," Jones said. "I was getting a good offense established. Everything is falling together."

Jones went 5-0 on the weekend, topping Kingston (Pa.) Wyoming Seminary sophomore Michael Johnson Jr. by a 1-0, 1-0 decision in the championship bout. Johnson ended the season ranked 10th nationally by InterMat.

Within the last month, Jones has a freestyle state title and a fifth-place finish at the USAW Folkstyle Nationals.

"It's not anything to brag about yet," Jones said. "I still have a lot of improvement."

Rock Island's Tyler DeHaven took fourth place in his weight class at the same tournament.
