ABILENE — Not only did 17 MAC Wrestling Club wrestlers finish in the top four of their divisions at Saturday’s District III West Sub-District Wrestling Tournament in Abilene – but seven brought home first-place championships.
The 12-under wrestlers were extra strong as Treyton Pelnar, Tucker Pelnar, Landon Thompson, Ryder Norstrom and Elijah Clarke all brought home championships in their divisions, while 10-under Jase Fitzmorris and 14-under Jonah Scott also finished the day with first-place finishes.
Taking runner-up spots were Jaxon Chrislip and Bryson VanEaton in 8-under, Hayden Farley in the 12-under and Neill Raymond in 14-under.
The Pelnar twins turned around on Sunday and turned in another set of strong tournaments when Tucker took first-place and Treyton took second at the Middle School Championships, also in Abilene.
