BAY MINETTE, Ala. - The Bay Minette City Council honored Baldwin County High School’s Braiden Williams during its recent meeting. Williams made school history this season, becoming the first student to earn a state runner-up title in the field of wrestling.

In addition to city recognition, school officials surprised him with a letterman jacket and a commemorative banner highlighting his accomplishments during an outstanding senior season for the Tigers.

In the 195-pound class, he was the Gulf Coast Clash Champion, Gator Duals Champion, Dolphin Duals Champion, Warrior Invitational Champion and Super Sectionals Champion. In addition, this season, he is a three-time Best Wrestler Winner.

At state, Williams advanced to the Alabama High School Athletic Association Class 6A championship round of the competition and finished as the 6A AHSAA runner-up in the 195-pound classification.

Baldwin County High School fielded its first wrestling team in 2015 and has continuously had athletes advance to the state competition. This marked the first year to have someone make it to the state championship match.
