Drew Liles, first place

By Jim Misunas

HOISINGTON – Class 3A Hoisington featured five first-place champions and third-place Class 5A Great Bend earned four first-place finishes in the Hoisington Cardinal Classic.
Great Bend’s Drew Liles (106), Eric Vazquez (120), George Weber (126) and Jeaton Sander (138) placed first. Runners-up were Alex Randolph (132) and Noah Presson (285). Vazquez defeated Dodge City’s Kennedy Escobedo 7-4 in the championship match. Hoisington’s Landen Urban defeated Presson for first place.
“We wrestled much better at Hoisington and we avenged some loses that we took the night before against Dodge City,” said Great Bend coach Nathan Broeckelman. “We were still able to place third at Hoisington even though missing three wrestlers. Despite these losses, I’m very pleased with where we are going into Christmas break. Now, we need to bunker down and get ready for the second half of the season. We will be looking for some junior varsity wrestlers to step up and fill in for some injuries that we took this last week in December. We’re looking forward to see where we end up at the end of the season.”
Dodge City downed the Panthers 39-33 Thursday in a hotly-contested match that went down to the final match for the second straight year. Payton Mauler sustained a broken arm against Dodge City.
“It was a tough week for the Panthers this week,” he said. “We may have lost two wrestlers for the season. Our varsity lost a tough dual Thursday night to Dodge City. To say that I was disappointed is an understatement. We got outwrestled by Dodge City in our dual and that’s not how Panther wrestling competes. Coach Lueders and his team came out and competed well. “
Hoisington’s Tanner Cassity (132, 10-0), Christopher Ball (145, 8-0), Jonathan Ball (152, 7-1), Sean Urban (160, 9-0) and Landen Urban (285, 7-0) captured first place. Jonathan Ball and Sean Urban finished with 5-0 records. Cassity was 4-0 and Landen Urban finished 3-0. Christopher Ball edged Dodge City’s state-ranked Tyler Garcia 3-2 for first place.
Finishing runner-up for Hoisington were Dustin Edmonson (138, 8-4) and Wyatt Pedigo (170, 9-1).
Larned’s Braydon Lemuz (113) and Jeremiah Slattery (220) finished second. Kristopher Nolde (120) and Hunter Fitzpatrick (126) placed third.
