Final Results from the MSHSAA Class 1 Sectional 3 are that three Blue Jays are off to State Wrestling Finals this weekend. They are:
132- Peyson Chandler 3rd place         
170- Cameron Williams 2nd place         
220- Lamar Henderson 3rd place

“In previous years Top 4 State Qualifiers would go to state,” said head coach Brett Swope. “ Unfortunately this year with Covid it’s Top 3.” The boys matches are all Wednesday, March 10 at the Cable Dahmer Arena in Independence.

Benedictine College Women’s Soccer head coach Lincoln Roblee is pleased to announce the signing of ten incoming freshmen to the class of 2021.
“I’m excited that these outstanding student-athletes are joining our Benedictine family,” Roblee said. “This group brings in tremendous talent all over the field. Combined with our strong returning veteran players, these talented newcomers should help us continue in our Championship ways.”
Mikenna Peters, West Platte Senior, is one of the players, having signed last fall. Mikenna has also been outstanding in track for West Platte and in the Junior Olympics.
The incoming players will be joining an accomplished Benedictine team that is consistently pushing for a National Championship and last season received the prestigious United Soccer Coaches Pinnacle Award for excellence on and off the field.
The class consists of All-Star players from Kansas (5), Missouri (2), Nebraska (2), and Texas. Besides being all-stars on the field, the 2021 newcomers are outstanding in the classroom, members of the incoming, team captains, National Honor Society members, organization leaders, and active in their communities.
