Two Liberal wrestlers advanced to the second day of competition Saturday, but both lost to end the Redskin run at the state wrestling tournament in Wichita.

Ayodale Braimah dropped an 8-0 decision to top-seeded Dalton Peteres from SNAC in the 145-pound weight class.

Trenton Wilson also ended with a 1-2 record at the state tournament after dropping an overtime match to Kapaun Mt. Carmel’s Nick Nece, 4-2.

Ark City was able to win the state tournament for back-to-back titles on the mat.

Perhaps the biggest surprise of the Ark City victory was that it broke the private school’s stranglehold on Class 5A competition this year.

So far, the five private Catholic schools in the 32-school division have won every state championship until Ark City’s wrestling victory.

The title count so far this season for private Catholic vs. public schools is 7-1.

While Ark City won the tournament, two private Catholic schools were right behind. St. James Academy finished second, and St. Thomas Aquinas finished third.
