Pae directs six Hornets into quarterfinals

COLUMBIA — Fulton head coach Eric Hudson wanted his squad to “place and score like a team that brought 10 kids” to the 83rd MSHSAA Wrestling Championships.

Meanwhile, Cody Pae had a milestone on his mind and took care of the task in quick order to make a strong opening case for a second state title in a row.

Pae produced the 100th pinfall victory of his high school career and was one of six Fulton wrestlers to advance to this morning’s Class 2 quarterfinals after posting first-round wins Thursday at Mizzou Arena.
