Hood wins Wildcat Classic championship in first meet back
January 5, 2013
It was another successful tournament this year as Louisburg hosted the annual Wildcat Classic last weekend. LHS finished in 7th place, just a place higher than last year’s finish. Raymore-Peculiar (MO) won the team title, followed by Tonganoxie and Blue Valley West.
Three seniors had pretty solid tournaments. Cullen Hood, in his first competition of the season, notched four pins and a decision en route to the tournament title at 126 lbs. In the finals, Hood knocked off a tough opponent from Lansing. Curtis Lemke (145 lbs.) also reached the finals, but he couldn’t pull out a victory. Lemke faced a strong opponent from Ray-Pec and he gave it his all, but ended up being tech-falled. Austen Scott finished third in his pool at 132 lbs., but in his last match of the day, he earned an exciting pin to earn fifth place. Scott was 3-2 on the weekend.
Sophomore Shea Cox (160 lbs.) also made his first varsity appearance this season, going 2-3 at 160 lbs. to take seventh place. Freshmen Parker Cates (106 lbs.) and Jacob Bolton (152 lbs.) both won matches in their pools to score points for the Wildcats. Two sophomores and four freshmen rounded out the Louisburg squad. Sophomores Zach Knox was 0-3 at 120 lbs. and Cooper Skeem was 0-3 at 170 lbs. Freshmen Zach Jones (138 lbs.), Kole McNatt (195 lbs.), Anders Vance (220 lbs.), and Bradley Trageser (285 lbs.) also competed for the Wildcats, but were winless on the weekend.
In just a few days, Louisburg will host Paola for a friendly dual. It will also be our senior night. Next weekend, we travel to Topeka, a new addition to our schedule, for the Topeka Invitational.
