The Ladies of the Marshfield Wrestling team had a fantastic weekend when they competed in Clinton for Districts. The Marshfield team placed 3rd out of 34 teams.
Congratulations to the following athletes who not only placed in the top four, but will also move on to State:
110 Alyx Keifert 2nd place
120 Macie James, 3rd place
135 Ariaha Mcillwain, 3rd place
155 Trinity Lesser, 3rd place
170 Izzy Whitlock, 4th place
"I am very proud of all of the girls this season," stated Adam Wright, Head Coach for the girls' wrestling team. "As a team, we finished 21 - 5 in duals, took 3rd in a 34-team district, were Conference Champions, Desoto Tournament Champions, Seneca tournament Runner Ups, and took third at Marshfield Duals. Most of our girls finished above their seed at districts, and we ended with 7 out of 9 girls in the top 6 at their weight classes. Our State qualifiers wouldn't have had the success they did at Districts without their practice partners and teammates pushing them all season."
Wright continued, "As for our five state qualifiers, I am excited, and I know they can compete well with the best in the State. We have a very tough district and have purposely wrestled a very tough schedule this season to prepare our girls for the state tournament. I look forward to seeing them go out give it their all and work toward their goal of being a state placer."
The State wrestling tournament will begin at Mizzou Arena Feb. 22.
