This past weekend was full of activities for the Pirates. On Friday and Saturday there was the 43rd Annual Platte County Invitational wrestling tournament, and the Pirates had an outstanding couple of days. We had 6 different champions including Cody Phippen, Matthew Schmitt, Ethan Karsten, Johnny Blankenship, Sage Smart, and Casey Jumps leading the team to their 2nd consecutive year winning their home invitational.
Along with the wrestling tournament, the girls swim team also held their own Invitational. With the newly renovated YMCA in Platte City, the swim team has a new home pool that allows them to have more swim meets like this. The pirates brought home 4 gold medals, Hannah Havemeier won the gold medal in the 200 I.M. and the 100 fly, Hailee Baer won the 500 free, and Skyelar Perkins won 1st place in the diving competition.
