The Potosi Trojan boys team had multiple finishes in the top 3. Potosi senior Aden Martinez third, sophomore Levi Dicus 3rd, freshman Gavin Stone third, and freshman Zane Richards second.

Pyatt said, “I went into it and Ste. Genevieve was there but luckily their best wrestler in 150 wasn’t there. I had my first match against North County and I beat him in the first round. My second match was against Notre Dame and I beat him. The last match was tough, he beat me in the first round. I came back and beat him. We did very well this past Saturday. ”

The Potosi Trojan girls team also had multiple finishes in the top 3. Potosi sophomore Alexis Missey finished third, Potosi seniors Harley Vance and Carly Saunders, and sophomore Jazmine Ramsey all finished second.

Vance said, “It was fun, it was definitely a challenging tournament for me. Our girls did really well though.”

The girls team will wrestle in the district tournament this Saturday, February 9 at Union High School.
