Mustain wins the 103-pound class and Belle Simpson places fourth at 167
Camdenton freshman Taylor Mustain made history Thursday night.
The Ozark Conference held its first women's wrestling tournament in Waynesville and Mustain was privileged to become the conference's first ever champion after winning the 103-pound class with a pin that only took 58 seconds. In doing so, Mustain improved her standing to 19-1 on the season.
"She went out and controlled the ties and set the tempo," Camdenton coach Grant Leighty said of the match. "She kept the pressure on until she got the takedown and once she got her on the mat, she was able to hook up a cradle and get the fall in just under a minute."
Freshman Belle Simpson (5-13) was also on the mats for the Lakers and Leighty said the freshman wrestled hard en route to a fourth place finish in the 167-pound class where she fell by fall twice.
Camdenton will be back in tournament action in Higginsville on Saturday for the Husker Invitational.
