Scott City boys, Lexington girls win J.R. Durham Invitational title

Norton, Kan. (westernkansasnews.com)–Several schools made the trip to Norton on Saturday for their first tournament coming out of the Christmas break. It was a competitive tournament on both the boys and girls side, which were held at two different sites in town. In the end the Scott City boys would come out on top to win the boys tournament of the J.R. Durham Invitational, while the Lexington girls took the top spot in the girls tournament.

The finals saw the three-team race between Scott City, Cozad and North Platte. The lead rotated between those schools in the final round, but in the end, the Beavers would pick up wins when they needed to, to win the tournament. Scotty City placed nine out of their 12 wrestlers, as Collin McDaniel at 150 and Houston Frank at 175 won individual titles. The Outstanding Wrestler of the tournament belonged to North Platte’s Tyler Haneborg, as he won the 113-pound weight class.
