— With five placers, the Tonganoxie High wrestling team finished eighth at the Eudora Tournament of Champions this past weekend.

The loaded two-day tournament required a wrestler to finish in the top two of his pool to make the eight-man championship bracket and five of the Chieftains’ 13 grapplers — Clayton Himpel (112 pounds), Britton Price (135), Nick Pursel (160), Matt Soetaert (145) and Adam Thomas (140) — were able to do so.

Pursel won his weight class, going 6-0 at Eudora. Himpel, a freshman, finished second with a 5-1 mark. Price was 3-4 and finished sixth, as did Thomas, whose record was 3-5. Soetaert placed eighth with a 3-4 record.
