VALLEY CENTER — Great Bend High wrestlers Cody Liles (132), Keaton Sander (138) and Christian Rivas (170) each won five matches at the Valley Center dual matches. Three-time state qualifier Liles and Sander are ranked third and Rivas is ranked sixth in Class 5A. Sander earned a 3-2 overtime victory over Wichita Carroll’s Connor Murphy, ranked sixth in Class 5A.
Great Bend finished 1-4 in the dual matches, beating Emporia 42-36 and losing to Wichita Carroll 46-29, Valley Center 62-15, KC Turner 42-27 and Team X 42-30. Three open weights cost the Panthers 18 points in most of the dual matches.
“We wrestled well overall,” said Great Bend coach Nathan Broeckelman. “Our overall individual records was 26-26, so we were very competitive. In two duals we lost we won the  same amount of matches or more, but the score came down to bonus points. We are looking forward to when we have our full team to see what we can do.”
At Salina, Great Bend’s Josh Hamilton (160) and Trey Hurd (170) placed first and Jacob Hanrahan (138), Hunter Britt (145), Braulio Vargas (160) and Blake Ridgel (170) placed runner-up at the Salina South Tournament.   
“I was very pleased with the results that we had in Salina considering most of our wrestlers our new to the sport,” Broeckelman said. “We have a lot of raw talent, so turning them into wrestlers will make us deep in our weight classes at the end of the year.”
