Gray wins regional title; 3 other area girl wrestlers also secure trip to state tourney

Free State's Madyson Gray pins Lawrence High's Abby Afful in the 130 pound match on Wednesday, Jan. 29, 2020 at Lawrence High School.

Free State sophomore Madyson Gray was one of four area wrestlers to make history this weekend.

Based on her performance in the regional meet at Paola, Gray, along with three others, qualified for the inaugural girls state wrestling tournament. The regional meet featuring 20 area girls also was significant, as this is the first year that girls wrestling is a sanctioned sport.

For Gray, it was business as usual. She won all six of her matches by fall en route to finishing first in the 130-pound weight class and punching her ticket to the state tournament. Gray pinned Brianna Randles of Topeka West in the championship match.

Gray, who won an unofficial state title last year in McPherson, is now 31-0 this season. She will have a bye in the opening round of the girls state wrestling tournament, which will take place at Tony’s Pizza Events Center in Salina at 9 a.m. Feb. 27.

Baldwin wrestlers Emma Grossoehme and Madi Hargett, along with Holly Colvert of Tonganoxie, will also compete in Salina.

Grossoehme, a junior, placed fourth in the 143-pound weight class after falling to Cadence Christenson of Basehor-Linwood in the third-place match. Grossoehme won four of her six regional matches, improving her record to 22-6.

Hargett finished fifth in the 235-pound weight class to notch a state berth as a freshman. Hargett has an overall record of 18-12 after winning via fall against Lansing’s Whitney Aseyo in the fifth-place match.

Colvert claimed fourth in the 191-pound weight class after winning five of her seven matches in the regional meet. Colvert, a freshman, is now 25-7 entering the final weekend of the season.
