King competes at 321A state wrestling

Hillsboro’s lone senior wrestler Travis King lost two tough matches to finish his high school career over the weekend at the 321A state tournament in Hays.

“This was certainly not the way we wanted it to end, but Travis has nothing to be ashamed of,” coach Scott O’Hare said. “He has been a consistent and reliable member of this wrestling program for many years.”

With 99 varsity wins to his name, this year marked King’s third trip to state. O’Hare said King displayed a high level of commitment and put in countless hours of grueling hard work for the Trojans.

“Hopefully it has helped to prepare him for next phase of his life,” O’Hare said. “It has truly been an honor to have the opportunity to work with Travis all of these years.  I am extremely proud of his efforts and commitment to the program.  He will be greatly missed in our wrestling room.”
