The two wrestlers who have been among the best in Class 3-2-1A Boys Wrestling held onto their No. 1 rankings again this week in the Individual rankings, released Tuesday by the Kansas Wrestling Coaches Association.
DJ Knox of Goodland (29-2) continues to hold the top ranking for the 106-pound weight class after being one of three Cowboy grapplers to win individual titles at the Hoisington Cardinal Classic this past Friday. Other Goodland wrestlers to hit the top of the podium of their weight classes include Octavio Gonzalez (18-6, 113) and Mason Hernandez (15-9, 138).
Tate Seabolt of Cimarron (26-0) was one of two Bluejays to take individual crowns at Hoisington, joined by 160-pounder Kyler Henry (21-6). Seabolt is the top-ranked wrestler at 170 pounds in the classification.
Two other area grapplers remain in the top six of their respective weight classes. Jesse Gardner (23-2) placed fifth in the 160-popund weight class at the always-tough Rocky Welton Invitational in Garden City.
Kayden Christiansen (15-7) is ranked fourth at 182 pounds. Christiansen also wrestled at the Rocky Welton Classic over the weekend.
