Jays third at district wrestling tournament
Saturday, February 11, 2012
The Jefferson City Jays are about where head coach Phil Cagle thought they would be after the first day of the Class 4 District 3 wrestling tournament.
But they were oh-so-close to being better than expected.
The Jays lost a pair of quarterfinal matches in overtime and sit in third place after Friday’s action at Fleming Fieldhouse.
Ozark is in first place with 66 points. Defending Class 4 state champion Blue Springs is second with 61, followed by the Jays with 50. The Jays finished third as a team in last year’s district tournament.
All 14 wrestlers for Jefferson City are still alive, and five advanced to today’s semifinals.
