HICKSVILLE -- It wasn't uncommon at state wrestling a year ago to see Hicksville's Austin Laney pause during his match and take a quick peek to see how his older brother Cody was doing a few mats down. And while Cody finished second at the tournament and graduated, Austin went 1-2 in his first appearance but will try to replicate or better his brother's accomplishment this year with a little less distraction.
