Letters: Wrestlers congratulated

March 10, 2011

To the editor:

I enjoyed Chris Wristen’s sports coverage of the Bonner Springs High School state wrestling team.

A high salute to the Braves for placing fifth in the Class 4A state tournament behind two state champions in sophomore Jonathan Blackwell and senior Caleb Seaton.

I remember interviewing Caleb Seaton when he was a freshman on the varsity high school squad during the 2007-2008 season while I worked part-time for The Chieftain as a sports reporter. During part of my high school student sports reporting days, I also helped cover stories about his dad, Jerry Seaton, when he was a high school wrestler in the late 1970s.

So this has made it a special joy to hear the Seatons continue to have success in high school wrestling for Bonner Springs High School through the years, while I follow the team in our hometown weekly Chieftain coverage every year.
