The Chapman Irish wrestling team placed 6th at the Mission Valley Tournament Saturday.

The team was led by senior Zach Ferris, who went 4-0, winning the 225 lb. weight class.

“Zach put on a clinic,” Chapman head coach Zach Lucas said. “He won two matches by technical falls, one by major decision and his fourth by a 4-1 decision.”

Other highlights noted by the coach were senior Jacob Doolittle going 1-1 and securing 5th place at 195. Junior Ryan Heingemuhle placed 5th at 182 after having a tough draw in the first round.

“Overall, the wrestlers had a good day at a highly competitive tournament,” Lucas said. “Chapman was able to beat league rival Marysville by one point on the team scores. That’s a good feeling. When we can come out and have a day like we did and beat one of the top wrestling teams in our league, you get the warm fuzzies. These guys wrestle hard and refuse to give up. You can’t ask for a better bunch.”

The Irish will be on the road as they travel to McPherson to compete in a double dual on Thursday
