WICHITA, Kan. (Catch it Kansas) - Wichita North girls won the West Division 1 Sub-State tournament as a team. Beating out all the other 6A and 5A teams, making a clean sweep of the lightweight classes and winning the first three championship matches.

Wichita North sophomore Rodah Bengi said, “Whenever it comes to tournaments, they’re all so supportive of each other. Whenever you see one of your teammates win, you get hyped up and then you’re like, ‘Ok now I’m going to try hard and win too.”

Wichita North wrestling coach Quinton Burgess said, “I think it’s just a testament to our girls and how hard they work. We talk to them all the time, we don’t know how to treat them any different than the boys and if you can hack it and do the workout, let’s go get after it. We don’t take days off and work extremely hard every day to get better.”

Wichita North senior Dialeen French said, “We’re putting in so much time and effort, hard work and dedication. Everyone on the team is just working as hard as they could and they have so much dedication in their hear that they just want to succeed. And I think that showcases our program and with us getting first.”

Bengi said, “We were expecting a lot of our teammates to make it, there are a couple who could have made it but we made little mistakes and stuff but next year, I know they’ll make it.

North is sending seven girls to state at the end of the month...a large jump from the two who qualified last year.
