The Chanute Blue Comets are KSHSAA 4A state wrestling champions.

“It’s a combination of excitement and relief,” says head coach Andy Albright, “We’ve been there several times and haven’t reached our goal. To bring it home to Chanute, Kansas is awesome. It’s a weird feeling. It still doesn’t feel real.”

The Comets finished off their state championship run on Saturday, with Trent Clements (106 lb) and Brayden Dillow (182 lb) winning individual state titles, while Kolton Misener (113 lb) and Parker Winder (160 lb) finished 2nd in their respective weight classes.

The team had a nice crowd in Salina to cheer them to the victory.

“To see the big seas of blue was awesome,” Albright adds, “Just to see them come out and support us, and to see how much we mean to them is great.”

Chanute finished 57 points clear of Marysville for the 4A team title. It’s the first time in program history they’ve had 9 placers at state.

Iola’s Logan Brown won the school’s first 4A state championship on Saturday, taking the 285 lb championship over Ayston Perez (Ulysses) by fall at 3:52. His teammate Trent Jones also earned a spot on the podium Saturday, finishing 4th in the 145-pound bracket.

Fort Scott’s Jacob Stinnett finished in 3rd place in the 138 lb bracket.

Sunday AM - Staying mild once again today - Nick

Good Sunday morning, everyone. We’re starting off on a chilly note this morning. Considering we’re starting off in the lower 50s (instead of the lower to middle 30s), we’ll definitely take it. Mostly cloudy skies are getting the morning started ahead of our approaching cold front from the northwest. Before […]
