In its first dual after a tournament title at North Kansas City, Blue Springs South won eight bouts, four each by fall and decision, to claim a 36-32 Suburban Big Six win Tuesday over Lee’s Summit.
The Jaguars improved to 13-6 in duals, 2-1 in the Big Six.
Dalton Kenig (120 pounds), Taron Fields (152), Trey Storey (160) and Cole West (285) recorded pins for the Jaguars, with West’s coming in just 10 seconds. Christian Findley (113), Wyatt Parker (182), Ben Lancaster (195) and Christian Boyles (220) notched wins by decision.
Sam Hampton (132) suffered his first loss after 25 wins, falling 11-9 to Lee’s Summit’s Alan Olivas in a matchup of state qualifiers. The Jaguars forfeited at 106 and 170.
“Coming off a good weekend I thought our kids would show a little more urgency,” South coach Doug Black said. “I thought we came out flat in an important dual for district and conference, and that is my job to get them ready.
“We have got to eliminate the little things that are costing us matches. It sounds like a broken guitar or a recorder that plays over and over – bottom line is we’ve got to the corrections. We need to be more disciplined and not complacent. The important thing is we came out on top and one of the goals is still reachable in finishing on the top part of the conference.”
