The Longhorn gym was full of energy Saturday for the Chase County Wrestling Club’s annual tournament. Thirty-three youngsters from the local club participated, who wouldn’t be there without the help of a coaching staff that includes Jeff Rusher, at left in bottom right photo. Here, he sends out directions to Tyson Lempke, who was wrestling at the time and whose parents, Jeff and Holly Lempke, bottom right, watch with anticipation. At top right, Canyon Lovenburg flashes a smile to his dad, Dave, as he and Porter Kelley have a topsy-turvy match. At bottom left, Wyatt Krausnick, right, and Malachi Christensen shake hands as the match gets started. Below left, Jaret Manley gets a kiss and some consolation from his parents, Audra Manley and Brian Manley, after a tough go-round. (Republican photos)
