After placing second as sub-state, senior 235-pound Kylie Meredith will advance to the 2021 Girls’ Wrestling State Championship 4-1A Tournament held in Salina on Friday, Feb. 26. Meredith placed second at the sub-state competition held Friday, Feb. 19, at Gardner-Edgerton High School and earned the right to compete for a state title.

“Kylie continues to show that she is one of the top two wrestlers in the state,” said Head Coach Ricky Creek. “Despite a lot of quick matches, she is starting to fix her minor flaws and is slowly working her way to being able to once again beat Armbruster from Chapman.”

Meredith met Rebekka Schaffer of Burlington in her opening bout and pinned her. Her second match of the day was against Seirra Dempsey of Santa Fe Trail and, once again, Meredith got the win by a fall. This victory put Meredith in the championship bout against Chelsey Armbruster of Chapman.

Meredith had beaten Armbruster earlier in the year, but Armbruster had claimed the last two meetings between the two. Armbruster pinned Meredith in the finals to earn the title.

Senior 132-pound Irish Rokey closed out her wrestling career with a sixth place finish at the tournament. Rokey went 1-3 on the day.

Meredith will head to Salina to compete at the Tony’s Pizza Event Center on Friday, Feb. 26. The tournament will begin at noon.
