BHS’s Culbert to compete in first girls state wrestling tournament

Osage County will send its best wrestlers to state wrestling competitions this week, including a competitor in Kansas’ first girls state wrestling championship.

Gianna Culbert, of Burlingame High School, will have a public send off today at the school, and is slated to wrestle Thursday, Feb. 27, 2020, in Salina, at the girls state wrestling competition.

Everyone is invited to join BHS faculty, staff, and students around 3 p.m. today, Wednesday, Feb. 26, as they send state qualifying wrestler Culbert to the state wrestling tournament. Everyone will line the hallway of the school from the high school office down to the elementary gym to wish her good luck. The band will lead her through the hall starting at about 3:10 p.m.

From Osage City High School, Dane Whalen, Noah Smith, Elijah Collins, and Connor Collins will be wrestling Friday and Saturday in Hays at the boys state wrestling championships.

Everyone is invited to help send off the four state qualifying wrestlers at about 8:30 a.m. Thursday, when they will be leaving from Osage City High School. First, the school’s drum line will escort them down the main student hallway, and everyone will line the halls to cheer them on. The Osage City Police Department is to escort them from the school parking lot east from the school to Sixth Street, then north to Market Street, from where they will head west out of town. Everyone is invited to line the streets and send off the wrestlers and their coaches as they work this weekend to bring home state titles.

At Santa Fe Trail High School, qualifying for the state wrestling championship were Christian Rowe, Stephan Roberts, Dakota Garrison, and Evan Dean.
