   The Wildcats' Alex Brown and Rodney Jones have been two of the state's top wrestlers this season. Jones has a 48-2 record at 170 pounds this season, while Brown is 45-3 at 220 pounds.
   Jones and Brown won Gwinnett County championships last month, becoming the first Duluth wrestlers to win a county title since Derek Ferguson in 1999.
  "They are the hardest workers in the room," Coach Kiefer said.
