After winning the team title at last week’s District 9-5A tournament, Highland Park will send 10 wrestlers to the Region III championships beginning Friday in Bryan.

The Scots won individual district titles in five weight classes, including Mo Purnell (132 pounds), Spencer Buchholz (138 pounds), Colby Hopkins (182 pounds), Aidan Conner (195 pounds), and Jeremy Hanes (220 pounds). Conner is a defending state champion.

Other regional qualifiers for HP include Kiefer Wetzel, Caleb Kimzey, Cade McCarter, Isaiah Pedack, and McClain Matter. All 12 competitors for the Scots finished fifth or better at district, allowing HP to surge past Carrollton Creekview in the team standings.
