HUMBOLDT — Last spring, the Kansas State High School Activities Association sanctioned girls wrestling for the 2019-20 school year. Humboldt’s senior, Cheyenne Harris, was ready to make her mark.
On Saturday in Paola, the 143-pound wrestler was the first Lady Cub to reach state in girls wrestling. Harris finished sixth in her division, clinching a spot at the state tournament in Salina on Feb. 28 and 29.
In her first match, Harris won by fall over Lauren Hooser of Lansing High. Harris cruised through the second round to advance to the quarterfinals, earning a win by fall over Holton High’s Ally Beard.
