Seaton falls in semifinals, assured of state medal
Basehor-Linwood sophomore Symon Seaton is assured of being a state medalist for the second straight year, but the number on the medal will be anywhere from three through six.
Seaton fell in the state semifinals Friday night, losing a 3-1 decision to Kyle Johnson of Columbus. In doing so, Seaton's shot at a state championship ended.
He next competes Saturday afternoon in the consolation semifinals.
In other action, 103-pounder Mike Torrez and 145-pounder Joe Johnson still have hopes of medaling. After falling in the first round, both won their first match in the consolation bracket and advanced to Saturday's competition.
Miles Brown (130 pounds) and Garret Kahle (140 pounds) both were eliminated from state after going 0-2.
