Wrestling competed in the 5A regionals on Saturday. Two Redhawks shined extra bright, placing first in their weight class.

Super Bowl LVIII might have been the largest sporting event on Sunday, but it wasn’t the only one. Eight Redhawks wrestlers competed in the 5A Regional meet at Independence High School Friday and Saturday, with the girls team finishing 6th out of 40 total teams. Senior Taylor Clapp and junior William Randolph, both regional champions, are advancing to the state meet in Houston Friday and Saturday, along with sophomore Dani Banks and freshman Angel Manchiri. 

“We had a fantastic tournament and I’m very proud of the accomplishments of our team,” head coach Justin Koons said. “We are continuously getting better and polishing up on the things we do best. We won the matches we were supposed to and battled in others, and we will be taking the four down, aiming to put some on the podium as a state placer.”

With this regional tournament being her final shot at making state, Clapp is very happy about the way things turned out.

“The final outcome was a lot better than we expected,” Clapp said. “I am extremely happy with how regions turned out. The team worked [very hard] to get there, and finally punching our ticket to state proves that all the hard work has paid off.”
