Girls Wrestling – Official Missouri High School Sport

Mr. Combest, Faculty Contributor

This year the Missouri High School Athletic Association approved girls wrestling as a new sport for the state of Missouri. Last weekend McCluer participated in the Ft Zumwalt North Boys and Girls Tournaments, which was the first every girls wrestling tournament in the state of Missouri.  Kynia Holloway and Ahkia Holloway took 3rd place and Alexus Yancey took 2nd place. The boys did not take home any hardware buy everyone placed in the top 6.   More pics available at the McCluer Comet Wrestling FB Page.


Also Demetrius Thomas wrestled in the Cliff Keen Invitational, one of, if not the hardest tournaments in the country this past weekend.  He entered the tournament unseeded and unranked.  He pinned two top ten wrestlers this weekend on his way to 4th place.  It is a long season, but he has a great start.
