Queen of the North Tournament Recap

Who is the Queen of the North?

Well there were 14 at Saturday’s Queen of the North Tournament at Liberty North Tournament.

From a team score aspect, Olathe West of Kansas won the tournament with 168 points even while only having one wrestler win their bracket. Mid-Buchanan was second with 136 points and Liberty was third with 126.

Wrestler Interviews:

The Dragons had two competitors take first in their bracket as Molly Stanton (125 pounds) and Kali Schuster (135) got to stand atop the podium with a crown on top of their heads. They also had three others that finished in the top four.

Stanton said she was able to get to her sweep single-leg takedown which led to her success as she pinned all four of her opponents and one of those included a pin over Liberty Wentzville’s Lillia Clay.

“I am improving and that’s what I am happy for,” Stanton said. “I am already doing a lot better than I did last season. I hope I am able to end (the season) good.”

Schuster, ranked No. 4, showed that she could be a contender to win an individual state championship. Like Stanton, she got pins in all of her matches. In the championship, she won by fall against West’s Gianna De Cicco in 2:36.

“I think I wrestled really well,” Schuster said. I thought I was going to get second place so getting first place really means a lot to me, especially since I got the crown.”
