COLFAX — Seven Colfax-Mingo grapplers won individual titles at the school’s home tournament on Jan. 4. The tournament was broken into two divisions — a JV and girls’ division.

Six of the champions came in the girls’ division. Senior Nicolasa Hernandez, junior Miranda McGill and sophomores Danica Linn, Kylie Doty, Kirsten Frier and Katie Schlosser all won first in their weight brackets, while sophomores Maggie Schroeder and Samantha Pierce placed second.

In the JV division, freshman Tevin Wamsher won the 138-pound bracket and junior Andrew Gorman was second in his 285-pound bracket.

Doty had the most impressive day for the Tigerhawks. She was 3-0 with three pins in her 132-pound bracket.

Schlosser was 2-0 with a pair of pins at 195. Schlosser spent only 59 seconds on the mat. Pierce was the runner-up to Schlosser at 195. She was 1-1 with a pin.

Frier had to win the most matches to win her title at 138. She was 4-0 on the day with three pins. She also defeated junior teammate Elayna Creech, 8-3. Creech was fourth in the bracket after a 1-3 day.

Linn won her 113-pound bracket with a 2-0 day. She won once by fall and once by an 8-4 decision. McGill was the champion of the 152-pound bracket after a 2-0 day. She won once by pin and once by a 2-1 decision.

Hernandez won the title at 120. She started her day with a pair of pins and ended it with a 4-3 loss. But the 2-1 record was still good enough to win the tournament.

Schroeder was 1-1 at 170. She was second after winning by fall and losing 6-4 in overtime.

Sophomore Mariah Webster placed third at her 126-pound bracket. She was 1-2 with a win by pin. Freshmen Judith Goetz and Samantha Haney were both fourth at 106 and 126, respectively.

Wamsher rolled through his 138-pound JV bracket. He was 4-0 with four pins. Gorman placed second at 285 after finishing 3-1 with three pins.
