WHS Wrestling Team Competed in the District 10-5A Wrestling.
The Wildkats started off a bit slow at the District 10-5A wrestling tournament this past Saturday. It wasn’t until Carson Dyer (Jr.) and Jonathan Jones (So.) hit the mat that the ‘Kats won their first match. These two went on to win 3rd in their weight classes and punched their ticket to the Region III-5A tournament. The girl’s team started off strong and was able to get 3 out of 6 teammates to qualify for the Region III tournament this weekend. (It would have been 4 out of 6 but senior captain, Chalace Bishop got injured in her second match and had to be withdrawn from the tournament). When the dust settled the Wildkats advanced 5 wrestlers, Dyer and Jones will represent the Men’s team. The Women’s team will be represented by first year wrestlers Paiton Sangster (So.), Tiffany Cherry (Fr.) and by second year veteran Grace Atkinson (Sr.)
The Wildkats will be competing this Friday and Saturday at the Berry Center in Cypress. If they can finish in the top 4 of their weight class, they will advance to State February 20th-21st in Garland.
