The WMS 7/8 Wrestling Squad finished 2nd Saturday as a team at the 2016 Pioneer League Wrestling Championships held at WMS with a team score of 175.0, behind first place finisher Ark City with 260.0 - 3rd place honors went to El Dorado with 170.0, Mulvane 4th with 163.5, Winfield 5th with 125.0 and Clearwater 6th with 99.0!
The WMS 7/8 Wrestlers moved to 8-0 on the season in dual-action, downing both Ark City and Circle in double-dual action at Haysville West Thursday. The Knights have not lost a dual this season - the Knights haven't even come close to losing a dual this season - if you add up the team scores for all "8" duals won, cumulatively the Knights have outscored their opponents 583 to 189 team points. That is domination to the n'th degree folks! These guys are good in other words! :)
