Wrestlers win Halstead tournament
Shults, Palic, and Kjellin get individual titles
All the hours of wrestling practice are starting to pay off for the Warriors. They took first with 185 points over the weekend at the 22-team Halstead tournament.
“I think the second place team had 154 points,” coach Chad Adkins said. “Our kids just keep getting better and better.”
Bryce Shults, Tyler Palic, and Adam Kjellin all went 4-0 to win their respective weights. Adkins said these were Palic’s and Kjellin’s first tournament championships.
Other top placers for Marion were Jarrett Johnson and Ezra Darnall who each finished second. Remington Putter also came in third.
The Warriors hit the mat next at 9 a.m. Saturday in Eureka.
