Two years, two championships for the Shawnee Heights wrestling team in the United Kansas Conference. But unlike last year, there was no drama, no hanging on by the skin of their teeth. Just flat-out domination by Chad Parks’ program in De Soto.
Six Thunderbirds won individual championships and 12 out of 14 finished in the top three as Heights accumulated 220 team points, leaving Lansing (154.5 points) and the rest of the field in their dust.
Heights ruled the lighter weights, with 106-pounder Tyler Lincoln, 113-pounder Brock Ferguson, and 120-pounder Decker Stickelman taking first place finishes. Also winning their weights were Caden Walker at 145, Zack Gonzales at 160, and Cole Manrose at 182.
