GC sends 6 to Girls Wrestling State Tourney; 11 total qualify

History was made this weekend as Kansas held its first Girls Wrestling Regional Tournaments, and 11 ladies from Southwestern Kansas will make their way to the state tournament.

At the West Regional at McPherson, Garden City - a team who has not been ranked for much of the season - ended up finishing second in the tournament and send six wrestlers to the All-Class State Tournament, which will be held Feb. 27 at Tony's Pizza Events Center in Salina.

The Buffaloes came up one point behind Great Bend, who clinched the region title in the final match of the tournament.

The six qualifiers were led by 130-pound region champion Anjelina Serrano, while the other five qualifiers made their way through the consolation bracket to clinch their spots. Also heading to state will be Chloe Sullivan (101), Ermeralda Corado (116), Destiny Avila (123), Belle Hernandez (136) and Alondra Guzman (171).

No. 6 Lakin had just two wrestlers at the regional - and both managed to qualify for state. Josiah Ortiz (101) and Isabella Ortiz (109), who made it to the championship match at regionals in overtime, have been state-ranked for much of the season.

Also headed to the state meet - Autumn Perez (143) of Dodge City, Amilia Martinez (109) of Holcomb and Mana Chanthansane (101) of Liberal.

Both Lakin and Dodge City finished in the Top 20 in the team standings at regionals.
