The girls’ match between Maura May of Imperial and Kinsley Vapenik of Wauneta had to be halted for an equipment malfunction in Friday night’s tournament. Maura’s hair became caught in Kinsley’s headgear, so with the help of newly-crowned State Wrestling Champ Eli Hinojosa, right, and Maura’s dad, Taylor, the hair was untangled and the match commenced. Grandpa Tim May has a chuckle in the background. (Johnson Publications photo)
