The final day of the wrestling season was all about the sisters Thursday. Out of 12 state championship matches at the Class 4-1A Championships in Salina, five featured sets of sisters from Pratt and Lakin. Three of those sisters won, including Pratt senior Ava Thompson. Teammate Livia Swift made history with her third state title, all helping the top-ranked Greenbacks win the team championship over Hoisington.
Almost a month into the high school wrestling season, Buhler’s defending state champion Sam Elliott is off to a 15-0 start. After bringing home a state title at the 152 weight class as a sophomore, Elliott moved up to 160 this season where he’s ranked first in class 4A.
