HAYS — Redemption was the theme for the Humboldt Cubs on Friday at the Class 3-2-1A State Wrestling Tournament in Hays.
Humboldt faced a murderer’s row of wrestlers to start off the tournament. All four opponents were ranked top-five in their respective weight-classes headed into state and each one handed the Cubs a tough loss to open things Friday morning.
“It was tough this year,” head coach Kent Goodner said. “The competition is always tough when you have the top 16 kids in 3 through 1A here, but it was just luck of the draw.”
