Priester to Grapple in Wrestling Championships

Missouri Military Academy junior Jacob Priester ’14, of Maumelle, Ark., offered a fantastic showing at this year’s Missouri Class 2 District 2 Wrestling Championship at St. Charles West High School.  Competing in the 195-pound weight class and seeded third, Jacob got off to a rough start Friday, losing by pin in the first round.  After receiving a bye in the first round of the consolation bracket, he went on to win his all three following matches by pin, earning  third place overall in the tournament.  Priester’s next match is Thursday at Mizzou Arena in the MSHSAA Class 2 Wrestling Championships, where he will square off against Devon Overall of Monett High School in his first match.
