Thanks for all who were able to visit the wrestling tournament this weekend. We were able to finish first at our home tournament! This was a real team victory as nearly everyone had scored points for the team!

The Topeka High wrestling team got back to competition after a relaxing Winter Break. The team traveled to Shawnee Mission South for a 16 team tournament. We finished 7th as a team. This finish was very special as we had no individual finish higher than 3rd! So this truly was a team effort. We finished .5 points ahead of 8th (so one less win, one less pin, or one less placing and we drop a spot)! We have our home tournament this weekend and we travel to Highland Park this Wednesday. We hope to see you at one of these in town events!

The Trojan wrestlers took the team title at the Melvin Douglas Invitational on Saturday. We placed 8 wrestlers in the finals! We brought home 3 individual titles as well as the team title! This was definitely a team effort and a lot of fun. There was a very nice write up in the paper also. A special shout out to the Trojan Basketball team who is in action tonight at HP! Go Trojans!

Thanks to all of the Topeka High Staff that supported the wrestling team on Tuesday. We had a fun crowd and some exciting matches. The Free State dual certainly did not turn out as hoped, but we were able to sneak out a win against Royal Valley! Individual match reports can be found at the links below. Thank you Topeka High!
