February 6, 2017 – The Tigers wrapped up their regular wrestling season with a trip to the Richmond Invitational on Saturday, Feb. 4.

Five different Tigers brought home medals from the tournament in the last chance to hone their skills in a competitive match before the postseason.

The top finishers for Excelsior Springs came from freshman Ethan Day and sophomore Dane Millsap, who finished second in the 106- and 126-pound weight classes, respectively. Senior Austin Morgan (145) and sophomore Hunter Williams (113) each finished third and Paxton Mullikan (120) finished fourth to round out the Tigers medalists.
