6-year-old wrestler takes second at state

Trevor Schafers placed second in an eight-wrestler bracket Sunday at the 6-and-younger state wrestling tournament in Salina.

Trevor defeated his first opponent in the 70-pound bracket by pin and then defeated his second opponent, 2-1.

He lost in the championship match to a wrestler from Nickerson, 7-0. Trevor faced the Nickerson wrestler three times this year. He lost every match but was never pinned.

This was Trevor’s second year wrestling. He went 22-6 this year with 12 points and two technical falls.

Trevor is the son of Travis and Kelley Schafers. He is the grandson of Mary-Ann and Keith Conyers and Steve and Barb Hett, and great-grandson of Tillie and Tony Schafers and Jackie Hett.

The other Marion Wrestling Club members are preparing for the district tournament in March.
