Mayor Mike Watson hands out Maumelle pins and keys to the city to the 2013 Arkansas State Wrestling Champs — the Maumelle Hornets, coached by Ed Viera and assistants Blake Butler and Tony Brainerd. Watson noted both of the assistant coaches are former members of the Maumelle City Council. Viera said he was proud all of the wrestlers are junior classmen and will all be back next year. The champs were recognized at Monday evening’s City Council meeting.
