The MAC Wrestling Club Lady Wrestlers had a strong performance at the War of the Roses Women’s State Wrestling Tournament on Sunday, held at Central Christian College.
While the majority of the MAC team is also part of the McPherson High School wrestling team, they all had a strong showing with Haley Schafer gaining a first-place championship in her high school division, while Mya Kretzer and Taylor Engel each earned second-place finishes.
Four ladies finished third, with Taryn Norstrom and Sierra Nigh in their high school divisions and Jordyn Hancock and Sarah Hitt in middle school divisions.
Six other MAC wrestlers earned fourth and fifth-place finishes as the tournament had wrestlers from at least four states participating, including Kansas.
The MAC Wrestling Club also had six wrestlers also competing on Sunday in Salina at the Elementary Championships. Elijah Clarke had the highest placing with a first-place championship.
