Irish Dominate Herington Tournament
By Chance Liebau
The Chapman Irish wrestling team continued a great start to the New Year by placing first of fifteen teams in the Herington tournament this weekend, which included first place finishes by Colin Henderson, Tye Paluso, Chance Hayden, Dalton Harvey, and Zach Ferris. The Irish are coming off of a 66-6 win over Herington last Thursday, so the Irish have a lot of momentum carrying over to the second half of the season.
As a team, the Irish went 45-11 on the day and only had one losing record. Erik Lemon and Mitchell Tiller also placed second, and freshman Ethan Diercks placed third.
The Irish will look to continue their successful start to 2018 in the Basehor-Linwood tournament on Friday and Saturday. This is arguably the Irish’s biggest tournament of the year.
