MULVANE – In a tournament with an additional incentive of earning wrestling belts for winning, the MAC Wrestling Club was able to bring one belt home for earning gold on Saturday at the Kansas Star Casino in Mulvane as Tucker Pelnar gained his belt by winning the 14-under, 105 lbs. Open Division.

Just missing out on a belt were Parker Hulvey and Treyton Pelnar as the MAC Wrestling Club had 13 total wrestlers competing among a total of 1,968 total wrestlers from several states.

The MAC Wrestling Club will be busy the next few weeks with the Newton Open-Novice Tournament in Newton on Saturday, Feb. 9 before they play host on Saturday, Feb. 16 to the MAC Wrestling Club Tournament to be held at Canton-Galva High School.
