Lincoln Blue Tigers Wrestling

The Lincoln Prep Blue Tigers Wrestling squad won their 5th consecutive Interscholastic League Championship Tuesday, February 4, defeating the Central Blue Eagles (66-6), the Northeast Vikings (72-0), and the East Bears (46-31). Freshman Marcel Carter (132) secured the win for the Blue Tigers with a pin over his East opponent with just one match to go in the dual.

The Blue Tigers ended the regular season with a 10-7 overall record in duals, including 3-0 in the IL. Both Lincoln and East will travel to Belton on Feb. 13 and 14 for the Class 3, District 4 Tournament, while Central will travel to Excelsior Springs for the Class 2, District 4 Tournament. Lincoln Prep sophomores Louis Moten II (195) and Judah Chris­tophersen (220) both went to State as freshmen and are looking to improve upon that performance.
