KANSAS CITY, Mo. — Blake Hopson drew the important assignment for leadoff in a dual between nationally ranked foes.

Unfazed, Park Hill’s junior two-time Class 4 Missouri State Wrestling Championships qualifier used takedowns late in the first and second periods and a reversal early in the third to take a 7-1 decision at 170 pounds. The win over Bryce Mattioda of Broken Arrow (Okla.) proved pivotal in Park Hill’s 33-27 win in front of an overflow crowd inside a boisterous upper gymnasium at Park Hill High School.

Hopson’s decision followed with a pin for junior Devin Winston at 182 and sophomore Ashton Sharp’s tiebreaker decision at 195 put Park Hill up 12-0.
