BELOIT – The Concordia High School wrestling team had four competitors place in the top six at the Beloit Invitational Tournament on Friday and Saturday.

Chanute captured the team title in the tournament with 218.5 points. Blue Valley Southwest finished second with 156 points and Colby was third with 111.
"I am very proud of the way our wrestlers competed at Beloit. We were the aggressor in most of our matches, looking for shots and trying to put points on the board.
