Also eyeing a big weekend is senior Jesse Collier, who qualified for state with a fourth-place finish at regionals.

Tonganoxie is taking three regional champions to the Class 4A State Wrestling Championships, each with different perspectives, but all the same goal: make history in bringing home an individual gold medal to THS. The Chieftains have had their opportunities and oh-so-close moments through the years, including coach Ross Starcher, who was a standout himself and a runner-up when he wrestled.
