The Council Grove Braves Wrestling team had a great weekend at the sub-state wrestling tournaments over the weekend, with the girls team competing at Ellis on Friday and the boys competing at Marion on Saturday. Due to COVID-19, the KSH-SAA divided the State Tournament into two weekends, with sub-state being the first half of the tournament, followed by state next weekend.

Jolie Ziegler was the winner of the sub-state title at 170 pounds and will move on to the final round in Salina next Friday. Ziegler had quick first period pins to pick up wins in the quarter and semi-finals. She faced off against Ava Mull of Larned in the championship match. Mull was 25-0 heading into the match. Tied 1-1 at the end of regulation, Ziegler won the match 1-1 after facing down Mull in third and fourth overtimes.
