Warrensburg High School athlete Lane Oehler (at top) won the championship title at 132 pounds in the Division II Class 3 Sectional wrestling tournament held Saturday Feb. 2 in Warrensburg. His win and the strong showing of Warrensburg’s 12 other wrestlers in the competition propelled Warrensburg to capture third among 13 schools in the tourney.
continued “Chris and Marc kept the crowd informed, entertained and involved,” Trapasso said, adding that new WCS Athletic Director Scott Smith’s day-long service at the tourney ranged from taking tickets at 7 a.m. to sweeping the gym floor at 8 p.m.
A large kitchen staff, including parents of local wrestlers plus WCS alumni wrestlers served up savory food far beyond the standard hot-dog-and-hamburger routine. Their offerings included pulled-pork sandwiches, chili, pasta creations and breakfast sandwiches, Trapasso said.
“Nicole Winchell took charge of the volunteer kitchen staff — there’s too many people to name — and they served people food all day and night,” the coach said. “So many people raved about the food and the workers — We had unbelievable support from the community.”
Besides 150 wrestlers plus managers and coaching staff from 13 schools, there were more than 400 general admission spectators, Trapasso said.
“It was a great event for the school and town,” he said. “It was a super day.”
