One round down, many to go

The first round of the 2015 Kansas State High School Activities Association Class 3-2-1A state wrestling tournament is on the books. One hundred twelve bouts were wrestled (14 weight classes, 8 bouts per weight class), and for 112 young men, their dreams of a state championship are over.

The championship quarterfinals are set for 2 p.m. The 56 winners of these matches will assure themselves of taking home a medal. The losers will have to win their first two bouts tomorrow to get onto the podium.

Norton is off to a good start in quest of its fifth state championship in the past six years. The Bluejays went 8-2 in the first round and lead the team standings with 28 points. Hoisington is second at 22.5, followed by Rossville with 19, Marion with 17 and Silver Lake with 14.

The Bluejays just received a large ovation as their eight wrestlers for the quarterfinals emerged onto the mats to warm up. We’re down to under 12 minutes to go before wrestling resumes.

About David

Louisiana native living in Kansas. New Orleans born, LSU graduate. I have Asperger’s Syndrome, one toe less than most humans, addictions to The Brady Bunch, Lifetime movies, Bluey, most sports, food and trivia. Big fan of Milwaukee Bucks, Milwaukee Brewers, New Orleans Saints, Montreal Canadiens. Was a big fan of Quebec Nordiques until they moved to Denver. My only celebrity crush is NFL official Sarah Thomas. I strongly dislike LSU fans who think Alabama is its biggest rival, warm weather, steaks cooked more than rare, hot dogs with ketchup, restaurants without online ordering, ranch dressing, Donald Trump, Bernie Sanders, LeBron James, Michael Jordan, Tom Brady, Alex Ovechkin, Barry Bonds, Putin, his lover in Belarus, North Korean dictators, Venezuelan dictators, all NHL teams in the south (especially the Lightning and Panthers), Brooklyn Nets and Major League Soccer.
