BHS wrestlers in third after one day at regionals

February 15, 2013

— Following one day of competition at the Tonganoxie Class 4A regional tournament, the Baldwin High wrestling team sits in third in the team standings. Four Bulldogs have punched their tickets to next week's state tournament and helped the team amass 112 points.

BHS is within striking distance of a team title, as it trails only host school Tonganoxie (148.5) and top-ranked Bonner Springs (120.5).

Jon Pratt (120), Tucker Clark (132), Bryce Shoemaker (138) and Mark Harman (170) each went undefeated in their respective weight classes and will represent the Bulldogs in Saturday's championship round. Their finals opponents are listed below.

Jason Von Bargen (160), Mario Garcia (182) and Tiler Garcia (220) are out of the running for individual titles, but each can secure a state berth with one more win on Saturday. Opponents for each wrestler will be determined when consolation cross-bracketing begins at 11 a.m. Six other BHS wrestlers are still in the hunt for top-four finishes, but must win multiple matches to avoid elimination.
