Euless Trinity only had one champion but six wrestlers placed in the top six at the Trojan Classic, held Friday and Saturday, Jan. 13-14.
The depth of points allowed the Trojans to accumulate 143 points and edge out a 7-point win over Justin Northwest to take first place at the Murray Activities Center.
The 50-team girls’ field was a competitive one for the four-team trophies handed out. Allen and Houston Cypress Ranch tied for third with 117 points, while Arlington James Martin High School had 115 ½ points.
Azana King, ranked No. 2 at 145, picked up the lone title for the host Trojans. She knocked off Class 5A No. 6-ranked Sierra Simmons of Northwest in the semifinals and then beat 5A No. 3-ranked Brijatte Garcia of Burleson Centennial by a 4-0 decision in the finals.
That win was No. 99 in her career.
“Definitely a milestone,” said King, who is now 28-2 on the year. “I felt like I was a setback because of rest my freshman year and then COVID. The girls that used to wrestle here hit their 100 mark a lot earlier than I did. It is nice to know I will be able to reach it this year.”
Meadow Hernandez (107, 5th), Madelyn Capetillo (126, 5th), Niyah Alexander (138, 5th), Jatoia Coats (152, 3rd). Coats had five pins, tied for second most in the girls tournament with five others.
