For the first time in school history the St. Michael’s Guardians wrestling program will host a district tournament. That time has come as six teams will compete on Saturday, Feb. 13 for the district title. Guardians wrestling coach Matt Infranca says he is “Looking forward to it.” The host Guardians mantra this season the team has followed is “Expect to win.”

The Class 1, District 5 Tournament begins with weigh ins at 9 a.m. and the final round will end around 3:30 p.m. One of the six teams competing in this tournament is the Summit Christian Academy Eagles. Eagles wrestling head coach Greg Thomas says his team of “only six guys, are a joy to work with.”

The larger classes will also be holding their district tournaments Feb., 13. Both Lee’s Summit Tigers and Lee’s Summit West Titans will have a road trip to Jefferson City High School for the Class 4, District 6 meet. The Lee’s Summit North Broncos will be closer to home competing in the Class 4, District 7 meet being held at Blue Springs High School.
