Del Norte High junior wrestler Roger "Bronc" McCovey will be honored at the Del Norte County Board of Supervisors meeting on Tuesday.

The board will read a resolution recognizing McCovey for what he has done on the mat this season and working tirelessly "in pursuit of team and personal success for Del Norte High School."

McCovey went 41-0 this season, culminating in winning the state wrestling title in the heavyweight division in Bakersfield last Saturday.

He became the first wrestler in Humboldt-Del Norte Conference history to be crowned a state champion in wrestling.

The meeting begins at 10 a.m. in the Flynn Administration Center at 981 H St.
