The Hastings Raiders wrestling team is slowly starting to get its state wrestling lineups figured out after the girls wrestling sectionals in Hastings set the brackets for the upcoming state tournament the first weekend in March. The Raiders are sending the following wrestlers to state:
– Skylar Little Soldier will look to defend her title, as she secured a section win to head back to the X in the 145 category
– Ivy Brandenburg is heading to the state tournament with a 2nd place section finish at 100
– Annabelle Norquist took 2nd in sections to head to the state tournament at 126
– Isabel Fritz is also heading to the state tournament with a 2nd place finish at 185
Other girls placewinners were Lauren Whitfield, 3rd in 138, Amelia Miller, 3rd in 152, Josie Giangiacomo, 4th in 165, Maddy Radspinner, 5th in 235 and Eliza Kurzawski, 5th in 135.
The boys wrestlers will have their sections coming up to complete the brackets for a wrestling team with state aspirations, looking to end a lengthy team state title drought in Hastings.
