PRATT — The Hesston High School boys wrestling team advanced seven of its eight wrestlers to the regional tournament after a fourth-place finish Saturday at the Class 4A, District 4 Tournament in Pratt.

Andale won the meet with 225.5 points, followed by Pratt at 217, Buhler at 123 and Hesston at 108.

“Without having faced some of the teams at this district tournament, we were not sure how we would match up, so we were pleased to get seven out of our eight competitors advancing to next week’s regional at Ulysses,” Hesston coach Doug Broadfoot said.

“We had three wrestlers stay home today, so we were pretty productive. Owen O’Halloran’s pin of a really tough Andale 195-pounder was the highlight of our day, along with having three wrestlers in the finals.  

“Maybe the most encouraging thing about our performance is that four of our advancing wrestlers are freshmen and sophomores. It was a ton of fun seeing Layne Clark get a couple of pins to advance.”

O’Halloran claimed the title at 195 pounds. Tyrone Taylor (160), Hayden Hartung (185) and Nathan Whitsitt (HWT) all took second. Clark took third at 113 pounds. Jaden Wald (106) and Cody Wohlgemuth (170) both took fourth.

The regional tournament is Friday at Ulysses.

Team Scores — Andale 222.5, Pratt 217, Buhler 123, Hesston 108, Nickerson 105, Clearwater 88, Wichita Trinity Academy 70.
