After sweeping State this year with both boys and girls team titles, Washburn Rural wrestling head coach Damon Parker announced Tuesday he will resign from coaching the boys team at the end of the school year.
A year ago, Seaman coach Matt Tinsley told his team their season was over. The COVID-19 pandemic ended a chance for the Lady Vikings to hoist a State Title. Now, they're back at State. After overcoming the obstacles, the team is happy to return.
For the first time in school history, the Washburn Rural boys wrestling team are State Champions. The squad dominated the field, finishing with a final score of 159.5. That mark was over 40 points higher than the second place finishing team.
