Swathers 11th

at Circle

TOWANDA — The Hesston High School wrestling team finished 11th out of 25 teams Friday and Saturday at the Circle Invitational.

Buhler won the tourney at 155, followed by Frontenac at 154.5, Chapparral at 131, Cherryvale at 126 and Fredonia at 126.

Among area schools, Remington was tied for seventh at 95, Hesston scored 77 and Halstead was 20th at 22. Remington and Halstead results were not reported.

Hesston was led by Jake Wingfield, who won the title at 182 pounds, finishing 4-0. In the finals, Winfield downed Quiency Jones of Labette County in 5:21.

David Merchant finished fourth at 145 pounds at 3-2. Jason Hecht finished sixth at 113 pounds at 3-3. Matt Whitsitt finished sixth at 160 pounds at 3-3.

Carter Wingfield finished 2-2 at 138 pounds. Michael Friessen finished 1-2 at 120 pounds. Tyler Bachman finished 0-2 at 126 pounds. Austin Griffin finished 0-2 at 152 pounds.

“This was a tough tournament simply because of its large size,” Hesston coach Doug Broadfoot said. “There were a lot of teams within just a few points of one another. I felt we competed pretty hard for the most part, it’s just that we haven’t had our full squad available since we won our own tournament in early December. So, to finish above the middle of the pack with just eight competitors was somewhat of an accomplishment. Jake Wingfield has really been on a role the last two tournaments and looked great pinning his way to the championship at 182. He has been very physical just at the right time of the season. He’s got a 15-win streak going right now heading in to the end of the season. David Merchant, Matt Whitsitt and Jason Hecht medaled where they were seeded, so we need to work on upsetting those seeded above them to help with their seeding for regionals.”

Hesston competes Saturday at the CKL Championships at Pratt.

Bethel competes


PITTSBURG — The Bethel College track teams set several school records at the KCAC Indoor Track Championships Friday and Saturday at Pittsburg State University.

The Bethel women tied for eighth, while the men placed 11th.

For the Bethel men, Demetrius Heath placed sixth in the 60-meter hurdles in 8.59 seconds. He set a school record of 8.52 in the prelims.

"Demetrius ran a pretty good race from the second hurdle on and almost came away with the win," Bethel coach Jeff Hoskisson said.

Rashé Boynton finished seventh in the women’s 60-meter dash in 8.08 seconds and broke a school record in the finals of the 200-meter dash in 26.37 seconds. She previously set a school record of 26.66 in the prelims.

"Rashe' had a great day," Hoskisson said. "She ran a really good race in the 60 finals. Her 200 was fantastic. For the first time this indoor season she looked really strong at the finish and just missed finishing 5th."

Katelyn Fatten placed sixth in the women’s 800-meter run in 2:32.19, a school record.

"Katelyn did just what we talked about doing," Hoskisson said. "Our goal was for her to compete and keep herself in contact and time would take care of itself. That is just what she did and was rewarded with a school record and a 6th place finish."

Heath Goertzen took eighth in the men’s triple jump in 42-5 1/4. He finished the long jump in 18-3.

"Heath really stepped up today. He has been working hard and really earned this," Hoskisson said.
