LHS, FSHS wrestling off to state today

February 25, 2011


— Lawrence High’s wrestling team isn’t tiptoeing into unfamiliar territory when it makes its drive to Wichita for the state tournament this afternoon.

Instead, since the team has endured a schedule full of two-day hotel stays and championship matches under spotlights, coach Pat Naughton is confident his team will avoid any distractions.

His high expectations haven’t changed.

“We’re going down there to win the whole thing, and it can’t be anything less than that,” Naughton said.

Ten Lions and six Free State High wrestlers qualified for state by placing in the top four at the regional tournament on Saturday at Olathe Northwest.

Matches start at 10 a.m. today at Hartman Arena in Wichita and continue until the championship matches Saturday afternoon.

Good luck to all the wrestlers at "the show." Your hard work day in and day out in the practice room will pay off.

Go Lawrence High. Win state!

Good luck men. I'd love to see multiple medals return to Lawrence at both high schools. A team title for LHS would be a nice piece of hardware as well.
