The results are in and the tickets to Columbia are punched.
Marceline hosted the Class 1 District 3 wrestling tournament on Friday and Saturday, and Brookfield was also in attendance.
The host school dominated the weekend, winning the district with 157 points. Gallatin finished second with 145, Lexington third with 117, and Brookfield's 114.5 points was good for fourth.
Brookfield 120-pound freshman Donavan Parn and junior heavyweight Brooks Baker both won their respective weight classes. They will join teammates Khalil Walker, second in the 152-pound class, Brent Downey, second in the 170, and Carson Wilkerson, third at 182, in Columbia on Thursday.
For Marceline, in the 106-pound weight class, Cooper Fisher will face Buffalo's Conner Pinkley in the opening round of the state tournament after winning his district on Saturday. Colton Fisher will face Lawson's Noah Walters in the 113-pound opening round after finishing second.
Colton Nelson won his third-place match at the 126 to earn a berth into the state tournament. A 7-2 decision in the championship match in the 138-pound class sends Clayton Stallo to Columbia, and Cullen Bruner placed second in the 145 to join him.
Rylan Chrisman finished second at 160, and Hunter Teeter advanced out of the district with an exciting victory in the consolation semifinals. He finished fourth.
Seth Cupp finished second at 182 and will advance.
"I thought we wrestled really well," Marceline coach Lee Bradley said. "We battled and battled, we had some really tough matches. Stallo got to avenge a loss from last weekend, and Bruner at 145 beat the returning state runner-up at 138. A lot of our guys got to contribute to some team points, first-year kid Alias Dauber got a fall to earn us some points, and that's awesome. It's great to see that, even from our kids who didn't qualify.
"Our fans were awesome over the weekend. It was a true home-field advantage. Our kids support each other, and that's awesome to see. If I have to tell our kids to scoot back, it's a good thing. Just like any other sporting event, you feed off of the energy of the crowd. When we do that, we're tough to beat."
