Lions wrestling second

January 30, 2011


— Lawrence High’s wrestling team went 4-1 in the Olathe North Dual Tournament on Saturday, losing to Staley (Mo.) in the finals.

The Lions beat Mo.-Kansas City (75-12), Washburn Rural (46-21), Lee’s Summit West (Mo.) (50-24), and Blue Valley Northwest (39-30), before falling, 41-24, in the final.

“We did pretty well, but we have a lot of stuff to work on,” LHS coach Pat Naughton said. “We wrestled in five duals. Those last two, you could really tell our shape was starting to wear on us. That’s one thing we’ll focus on for the next two weeks.”

Reece Wright-Conklin kept his undefeated season going with a 5-0 mark on Saturday in the 171-pound weight class. Wright-Conklin, a junior, is 28-0 this season and 89-4 in his LHS career.

Hunter Haralson (119), Andrew Denning (145) and Ben Seybert (189) also had 5-0 showings on Saturday.

Good jobs guys! Staley HS (MO) is tough. Especially with Coach Haggerty, a legend in wrestling!
