Buhler High School’s Payton Warkentin, so., wrestled in the Kansas Girls’ State in McPherson on Saturday, Feb. 9, and finished sixth out of 56 girls in the 113 pound weight class.

“There was lots of tough competition,” Warkentin said.

During the tournament, Warkentin wrestled five times and won four of the matches. She was in the higher bracket, so she had to wait and wrestle winners of lower levels.

Warkentin has been wrestling for two years since coming to BHS.
