The returning girls all looked good to go.
Alexus beat Wright City who we wrestled in the Semifinals at Districts last season.
Alizabeth Welch had a fiery tournament by knocking girls out early with some big time wins.
Abby Bowen wrestled for 3rd Place and only losing 7-9 in the last moments of the match.
Senior Karisa Hayden wrestled well and she had to face a state champion from Moberly in her bracket.
We also have a lot of new faces on the team that got to wrestle in their first high school tournament. Lilly Debo, Jashayla Johnson, Alyssa Knight, Abby Seibert all wrestled good and learned a lot in their first tournament.
We are looking forward to Thanksgiving Break to get some rest and sharpen up on somethings in practice.”
