Madison Southern had three wrestlers compete at Kentucky Girls State Championship on Saturday at Tates Creek High School in Lexington.

And all three reached the podium.

Amelia Foltz claimed a state title in the 113-pound division, while Issabella Robinson took second in the 120-pound division and Sage Jackson finished fourth in the 220-pound division.

Despite having just three wrestlers in the competition, Southern finished sixth in the team standings with 70 points.

Foltz went undefeated as she earned the school's second-ever state wrestling title.

She defeated Jessie Bradshaw by fall in the first round, then defeated Ashii Zencka by fall in the quarterfinals. She beat Katie Guevara-Maldona by fall as well in the semifinals.

In the championship match, Foltz beat Gabrielle Ocasio of Simon Kenton, 7-2.

Moriah Hill (2019) is the only Southern wrester to win a state title.

After getting a bye, Robinson won her first three matches -- all by fall. She beat Katherine Lamb, Gracie Savage and Alex Uribe to move into the finals.

Robinson came up just short in the final match, falling to Savanna Bacon on Union County by fall.

Jackson got a bye in the first round, then beat Kristina Carew by fall. She suffered a 2-1 loss by decision to Aly Porter, but bounced back to beat Samantha Little in the consolation bracket.

In the third-pace match, Jackson fell by pin to Tameira Edwards of Western.

Jackson was the runner-up in the 220-pound weight class last year, falling to Hill in the championship match.
