“This was a good tournament with quite a few state medalist caliber wrestlers,” Hesston coach Doug Broadfoot said. “We had some tough match-ups early, but wrestled pretty well in those matches.”
Hesston was led by Matt Whitsitt at 160 pounds, who finished 4-0, winning all four matches by fall or technical fall.
“It was exciting to see Matt Whitsitt dominate the 160-pound bracket, especially avenging a loss from last week in the finals,” Broadfoot said.
Sean Duerksen finished fifth at 3-2 at 220 pounds. Jason Hecht finished sixth at 126 pounds at 2-3.
Alex Koehn finished 2-2 at heavyweight.
“Jason Hecht beat a quality opponent from Cherryvale on Friday, and even though that same kid caught him Saturday, Jason knows he can wrestle with some pretty tough dudes,” Broadfoot said. “Alex Koehn wrestled a much smarter tournament than last week. Hopefully, that will carry over
for the remainder of the season. Sean Duerksen continues to show remarkable improvement for a first-year wrestler. He is getting closer and closer to defeating wrestlers that seem to have his number. As he gains experience, he’ll become a dangerous opponent.”
Riley Slater (120), Cody Wohlgemuth (152) and Owen O’Halloran (182) all finished 0-2.
