The Class 4 District 4 tournament, which will take place on Feb. 14-15, is arguably the toughest in the state.
Four of the top 10 teams in the MissouriWrestling.com poll will be in that district including Liberty (No. 1), Staley (No. 2), Park Hill (No. 3) and Blue Springs (No. 8).
However, one team in that district that may be overlooked are the senior-leaden Lee’s Summit North Broncos. They proved they could be a threat Saturday in the Lydia’s Lights Tournament at Blue Springs South High School.
North dominated the competition, scoring 527.5 points and having six first-place finishers to capture the tournament title. Park Hill South was a distant second with 348.5 points and Blue Springs took third with 305 points.
“I thought we wrestled really well,” North coach Mick Crock said. “There were some matches that we’d like to have back. But to have that many kids in the finals (nine) and have quite a few champions, I thought we wrestled well.”
