The first-place Hoisington wrestling team

HOISINGTON — The Hoisington Cardinals scored 147.5 points to win the Hoisington Cardinal Corner Classic Wrestling Tournament.

Hoisington's Cole Steinert (132), Wyatt Pedigo (195) and Riley Philbern (285) captured first place in the Hoisington Cardinal Corner Classic. Finishing second were Foltz (126) and Joshua Ball (170).

"I like what I saw today. We are getting better," said Hoisington coach Daniel Schmidt. "We need all of our wrestlers to compete at the regional tournament to have a chance of a top five finish at the 3A State Tournament in February."

All team members both varsity and junior varsity were able to get into the bracket with only the varsity wrestlers allowed to score towards the team trophy. The tournament also hosted an all girls tournament.

Three Cardinal girls also competed.

"I was pleased with our three girls who competed. All three finished in the top three being with the sport a handful of weeks," Schmidt said. "Kansas is close to sanctioning girls wrestling as a sport in the KSHSAA. It could happen as early as next year. Girls' wrestling is the fastest growing sport nationwide. Kansas colleges are looking for talent." 

The Cardinals compete Jan. 3 at the Larned Round Robin.
