Gomez finishes third
Hillsboro Wrestling Club member Devin Gomez placed third in the 8-and-younger, 70-pound division in the Kansas Kids State Championship Wrestling Tournament this past weekend in Topeka.
Gomez won his opening match by fall and defeated his second opponent, 7-2. He lost to the eventual state champion in the third round. Gomez pinned his first opponent Sunday and then defeated his next opponent, 6-4.
“His third-place finish is the best finish at state from a member of our club,” assistant coach Scott O’Hare said.
Levi Buckridge finished sixth in the 8-and-younger, 46-pound division.
