Hornet wrestlers take division at tournament

O’FALLON — The Fulton Hornets wrestling team, featuring three individual champions, took first place in the Gold Division at the Fort Zumwalt North Tournament on Saturday.

“We did a nice job of competing,” Fulton head coach Eric Hudson said. “At times we were physically overmatched, but we hung in there and won some of those matches. Even the ones we didn’t win, we competed until the end.

“We had a really good showing for ourselves. I was really proud of the kids.”

Taking first place in their respective weight classes for the Hornets were a trio of seniors — Cody Pae at 132 pounds, Drew Benner at 160 and Kelcey Nunley at 170. All three finished with perfect 5-0 records.
