CHS wrestlers finish 2-5 at Colby tourament

COLBY — Winning two of their first three duals before dropping their last four, the Concordia High School wrestling team went 2-5 in the Colby Dual Tournament on Friday and Saturday.
Concordia opened with a 40-36 win over St. Francis.
The Panthers were beaten 63-6 by Valley Center before defeating Oakley, 48-35.
Concordia then lost 57-24 to Hays, 52-18 to Goodland, 42-40 to Legend, Colo. and 48-30 to Scott City.
“This was a tough tournament against some traditional powerhouses across the state. We gained some valuable experience for our young wrestlers with seven matches in two days,” Concordia coach Kevin Brown said, “This experience will help us to improve our areas of concern and focus on technique in practices. I am confident these young men will bounce back from a tough weekend of competition and continue to improve over the next couple of weeks.”
