Jackson Sapp (’23) fights for the take down on his way to 5th place.

The varsity north point boys wrestling team was just at Francis Howell for the annual Kyle Thrasher Tournament. With Thrasher being one of the biggest tournaments around there were lots of teams there, so naturally the tournament was very difficult.

Thrasher is one of the most difficult tournaments in this part of Missouri and since we are a brand new school, there is lots of potential in their wrestling team.

“I think that with us being a first year school, we are going to dominate the next couple of years and be a really good team,” Logan Redel (’25) said. 

When asked about their favorite part of the thrasher two day tournament wrestlers were very enthusiastic and excited about the tournament but also how they are excited to see how the coming seasons will play out.

“Us being a first year team was tough, but I am really excited and confident about how good we will be very soon,” Jackson Sapp (’23) said.

Kaden Purler (’25), who placed first in the Thrasher Tournament as a freshman and got a belt for getting first place, was very excited about his win but also excited about the team’s future.

“It was really cool to win as a freshman because Thrasher is such a big tournament that’s really hard,” Purler said. 

The team had a tough tournament but also had a good time bonding and getting to watch wrestling.

“Going to the second day was really cool because I got to see all the first place matches,” James Thompson (’25) said.

The team got lots of experience and got to watch some really good wrestling.
