  • Blue Springs South wrestling coach Doug Black was happy with the way his team responded Tuesday.
    After a seventh-place finish in their own tournament Saturday, the Jaguars downed Liberty 45-30 and Liberty North 42-36 in a double dual Tuesday at South.
    “I liked how our kids came out tonight and put it all on the line,” Black said after his team finished 14-5 in duals. “They came out and scrapped like a bunch of hungry dogs. We knew coming in that we were giving up 24 points in each dual. The kids fought hard and did not care.”
    Christian Findley (106 pounds), Dalton Kenig (113), Sam Jackson (132), Wyatt Parker (182) and Christian Boyles (195) each won both of their matches. Findley and Kenig got pins in both.
    Sam Hampton (120) pinned his opponent in 32 seconds against Liberty North and won a forfeit against Liberty. Trey Storey (138) and Cole West (285) also went 2-0 with a forfeit. Mitchell Hollis (160) won against Liberty.
    FORT OSAGE 47, NORTH KANSAS CITY 30: Carter Behler (113), Bryce Braughton (145), Jacob Reynolds (170), Herman Tapusoa (220) and Bryce Richardson all won by pin to help lift Fort Osage to a Suburban Middle Seven dual win over North Kansas City Tuesday.
    Jesse Jeffries (132) and Jeremy Barnes (160) won major decisions, Sam Ramsey (106) won a decision and Jesse Reser (138) won a forfeit for the Indians.
    ODESSA 38, OAK GROVE 37: Oak Grove’s Drake Hoffman (113) not only needed a win, he needed bonus points.
    But his major decision over Odessa’s Brett Shull in the night’s final match was not enough as Oak Grove lost by a point to the arch rival Bulldogs Tuesday.
    Logan Cairer (145), Taylor Brinegar (160) and Preston Airington (195) each won by pin to give the Panthers a 33-21 lead, but losses at 220, 285 and 106 – two by pin and one technical fall – put Hoffman on the spot.
    Tyler Brown (126), Bryce Mercer (132) and Anthony Barker (138) all won by technical fall for Oak Grove.
