By: Derek Zimmerman-Guyer

When it comes to wrestling in Northwest Missouri, the Cameron Dragons can call themselves the final boss of the MEC as they have won their second-straight conference meet on Saturday at Benton High School.

Cameron placed 11 top-three finishers and scored 387 points on its way to glory. Chillicothe came in second place with 298 points. The Dragons also scored five champions as well: freshman Caleb Husch (34-2) at 106; sophomore Tanner Cameron Riley (32-2) at 113; senior Coleman Oxford (34-4) at 120; senior Caleb Worland (38-2) at 152; and junior Camren Hedgpeth (33-5) at 195.

With Worland’s offseason training and his team’s all-around success, he is confident in what his team can accomplish with districts right around the corner.

“Our team is amazing this year,” Worland said. “We have a solid team all the way through. We’re undefeated in duals right now, I believe. I’ve been wrestling good so far this year. I feel like I’ve grown a lot since last year with the Park Hill wrestling program.”
