Hays High's Sarah Zimmerman wins regional wrestling title
Hays High sophomore Sarah Zimmerman captured a regional wrestling championship last Saturday at Dodge City and was joined by three other HHS girls as sub-state qualifiers.
Zimmerman needed just 1:58 of total mat time to pin her two opponents — Anahi Cervantes of Garden City and Lainie Burkhart of Goddard Eisenhower — in the 109-pound class in the Division I Regional 1 tournament.
Zimmerman improved to 23-3 on the season.
Hays High's Addie Otte, Halle Lohmeyer and Kay Dees also qualified for next Friday's sub-state tournament at Wichita Heights.
Otte went 2-1 on the day at 120 pounds. She pinned Hutchinson’s Samara Jimenez before taking a 1-0 decision win over Garden City’s Kamryn Foster in the third-place match.
Lohmeyer (143) and Kay Dees (126) each took fourth place in their respective classes.
