Warrensburg to host wrestling championship tourney

Warrensburg's Class D tourney on Feb. 6 is being organized by members of the Varsity Wrestling team as well as the Warrensburg Wrestling Club and volunteers.

"We'll be putting on a good show," Trapasso said. "We want the Class D tournament to come back here soon."

The WCS Varsity Wrestling Team will be entering a full slate of wrestlers. Standouts expected to do well include Donovan Santisteban at 119, Cole Tennant at 152, Kendall Converse at 189, Logan Winter at 135, Aiden Szabo at 96, and Beecher Baker at 103.

Trapasso said others on the team -- "dark horse" competitors -- are likely to surprise fans and make their mark in the tourney, as in years past.

Maybe they'll turn to the past for inspiration.

The last time Warrensburg hosted the Class D tournament, Warrensburg's own Troy Beadnell won his weight class and went on to become the Section II Champion and a State Finalist.
