Senior Evan Darville’s win in the 285 weight division was one of the highlights for the Dodge City Red Demons wrestling team this weekend as it competed at the Garden City 6A Regional Wrestling Tournament.

It was one of two regionals in 6A Kansas wrestling.

Darville was one of nine Red Demons who used Friday and Saturday’s efforts to advance to the 6A state wrestling tournament scheduled for Feb. 22-23. That tournament takes place in Park City-Hartman Arena in Park City, Kansas.

Darville’s qualification for state also means he’ll have a second shot at winning the State Championship in the 285 division, something he came so close to doing last spring. He lost in double-overtime of last year’s final match to then senior Kasdon Arehart.

Also returning to state is Red Demon senior Couy Weil, who finished second in the 120 division this weekend. Last year, he competed at state in the 113.

Jashon Taylor returns to state in the same division he competed in last year after finishing third the 160 division this weekend.

Garrett Edwards, who competed at state last year in the 132 division, finished second in the 138 division this weekend and also advanced to state.

Others who qualified for state were Damian Mendez, who finished second in the 106 division; Danny Rojas who finished fourth in the 126 division; Marcelino Otero, who finished fourth in the 145 division; Julian Galindo, who finished seventh in the 182 division; and Armando Monreal, who finished seventh in the 195 division.

Overall, Dodge City finished sixth as a team, behind Haysville-Campus, Garden City, Washburn Rural, Manhattan and Derby, which won the tournament.
