Meet Recap

The Dragon wrestling team did their best wrestling to date this season. It was fun to watch it all come together over the two day tournament in Leavenworth. Blue Valley Southwest took first with 209.5 points, Mill Valley took second with 202.5 and Pittsburg third place 191 points. It was the first year class 5A went to a two regional sixteen team tournament . The wrestlers were placed in a sixteen man bracket with the top eight advancing next Friday and Saturday to the state wrestling tournament in Wichita. The team advanced ten wrestlers into the state tournament this year. We put seven in the semi finals and got four through and into the finals on Friday night. In the medal rounds, the Dragons finished with seven wins and three losses. Kayne Hutchison received the Outstanding Wrestler award of the Regional tournament. I do not think Kayne had a single match go more than maybe a minute. He was very deserving of this award and it’s been sometime since a Pittsburg wrestler has received this award. The group as a whole seems very focused on what they need to do and I’m excited to watch the last performance for many in a Pittsburg singlet. I’m confident each wrestler will represent it well.
