Rocking an opponent back on his shoulders for a pin count is Iola Middle School’s Kaleb Mock, a seventh-grader, during a home wrestling tournament earlier this season. Mock took first in his weight bracket Tuesday at Parsons.

PARSONS — Always being aware of improvement and progress on the mat from his wrestlers, Iola Middle School head coach Ron Schomaker had plenty to feel good about Tuesday night.
“We had several come-from-behind wins at the Parsons tournament,” Schomaker said. “With one more tournament (Thursday) remaining, it’s been the most successful season we’ve had.”
Iola Middle School wraps up its third season of wrestling Thursday at Chanute.
The Pony wrestlers came away with four first-place finishes, four second-place finishes and two wrestlers taking third place in their brackets at Parsons Tuesday.
Taking first place in their respective weight brackets were John Whitworth, Bryce Misenhelter, Kaleb Mock and Trey Colborn. Michael Armstrong, Derrick Weir, Roger Maynard and Jonathan Tidd were all second. Placing third were Travis Rieske and Garrett Tomlinson.
