tough against some of the state’s top talents in both boys and girls
divisions. On the girls’ side, Mana Chanthasone would lead the pack, going
3 and 0, pinning all three of her opponents to take 1st place. Last year’s
state qualifier, Leilani Torres (2-1) would take 2nd at 191, only falling
to a very tough Pratt girl ava Mull. The season’s up and comer, Angelica
Quezado (1-2), continued a strong early showing and picked up 4th place at
138. Other girls who traveled are Alexa Valenzuela (1-2), who went 1 and 2
with her first pin, and Georgina Dominguez (0- 2) and Isabella Gutierre
(0-4), who both had some of the states toughest wrestlers. The boys faced
some stellar competition and Trystan Juarez (2-1) led the way taking 2nd in
182 weight class, losing to Mason Levin a state placer from last year, 8 to
6. Liberal would get 3 boys to wrestle strong on the backside and pick up
some 3rds. Irving Mendez (5-1), Tommy McClure (5-1), and Jesus Torres
(3-1). Liberal’s other boys, Davian Franco (1-2), Alex Schwindt (0-2),
Edgar Landa (0-2), and Bradley Kendall (1-2) all battled hard and showed
improvements. “We started out shaky, but then a lot of kids turned on the
gas and started competing. We still have a ways to go, but a lot of heart
and class were shown today.
