Senior Tucker Rhoades battled through arguably one of the hardest brackets in the state wrestling tournament this year at 138 pounds.  Headed into the tournament Rhoades was ranked sixth in the state but the bracket, according to coaches, lined up perfectly for Rhoades to make it into the finals.

In his first round Rhoades defeated state ranked Senior Dalton Dultmeier from Silver Lake with a final score of 1-0. In the quaterfinals Rhoades had a first period pin (in one minute seven seconds) on Minneapolis’ Austin Constable. The semifinals for Tucker would be his most hard fought one, going against unranked Senior Darion Bailey. After the final period the score was 1-1, resulting in overtime.

In the first overtime neither Rhoades nor Bailey could score. In the second overtime, Rhoades chose bottom and was able to escape. He was able to hold Bailey for thirty seconds, giving a 2-1 decision to Rhoades, sending him into the state finals. Rhoades met up with with Hunter Ostertag from Atchison County Community, who he last saw in the 321A state fifth and sixth place match last year. In the end, Rhoades was handed a second place finish by Ostertag with a decision of 5-2.

The Monarchs also had a sophomore, Creighton Newell, make it to the state tournament for the first time in his career.  He did not place.
