The Jayhawk-Linn wrestling team only took one wrestler to the 3-1A State tournament in Hays on Feb. 27  but this year was about quality over quantity.

Corbin White became the first wrestling State champion for the Jayhawk wrestling high school program going 3-0 in the tournament to win the 106 weight bracket.

White’s first place finish gave the Hawks 25 team points, which gave them a good team placing in the tournament. Jayhawk placed 16th as a team. Fellow Three Rivers League school Uniontown was right behind the Hawks with 24 team points. The Eagles also had one wrestler at State in Bryce Eck and he won a State championship for Uniontown in the 152 weight class. Hoxie won the State tournament with 154 team points.
