3 wrestlers survive 1st day of state tourney

Brentwood and Maplewood Richmond Heights each sent four wrestlers to the MSHSAA state tournament in Columbia. On Thursday they competed twice. Brentwood has one wrestler going on in the bracket; MRH has two continuing.

A loss in the first round sends wrestlers to wrestlebacks, which is what all eight (total) from Brentwood and MRH did. After a second loss, in wrestlebacks, a wrestler is out of the tournament. As long as a wrestler wins, he or she (there is at least one female in the tournament), will continue up the bracket.
