LHS wrestling wins Eudora tourney

? The Lawrence High wrestling team placed first at the 22-team Eudora Tournament of Champions on Saturday.

Lions seniors Reece Wright-Conklin (182) and Nick Pursel (170) were undefeated and took first place in their respective weight classes. Five LHS wrestlers made it to the finals of the tournament.

LHS coach Patrick Naughton said his team’s 6-0 start in the morning set the tone for the day. Naughton praised his team’s consistency and said his wrestlers had only two bad rounds in which they gave up points they should have won.

“It’s definitely something to build on for the rest of the season,” Naughton said.

Lawrence High will wrestle next in a dual versus Gardner-Edgerton on Tuesday.
