Wrestling Regionals

The Prairie Falcons wrestling team sent 15 wrestlers to regionals and advanced all 15 to the state tournament this year which is the most ever in school history.

The Falcons had 4 regional champions, Kennedy Wilcox, Mason Frei, Alex Ford, and Faith Tarrant. They also had 11 placers in the regional tournament including James Stager, Alex Ovando, Evan Sturdivant, Lucas Lyle, Nicholas Crousare, Yana Paskar, Josh Blick, Caleb Blick, Seth Blick, Regan Schlaefli, and Myles Greener.

With half the season taken away due to covid, the falcons kept working and kept their eyes locked on to the state tournament. “ Everyone’s goal from the very beginning is to place in state so we all knew what we had to do to make it in.” says junior Alex Ford.

“ We still have a lot of wrestling ahead of us.” says senior Lucas Lyle, “ Once you’re in the state tournament, nobody cares about your record or past achievements because anything can happen on the mat.” The Falcons will have to wrestle their best this weekend in the Tacoma dome to reach their goal of placing as a team in the state tournament.
