GARNETT — Friday night went according to plan at the 4A regional wrestling meet in Garnett for the Iola Mustangs.

In head coach Jason Bates’ six-year stint at the helm, the most state qualifiers he had was three, but that is no longer the case. TJ Taylor, Trent Jones, Gary Lower, and Logan Brown have already punched their ticket to Salina. 

“Out of 12 wrestlers, 11 of them are still competing in day two, which is another great thing for us,” Bates said. “But there’s still a lot of work on that back side that needs to be done.”
