The LaRue County Mat Hawks did what they were supposed to do Saturday at Owensboro High School: win the Region 2 Wrestling Tournament. The Hawks placed six in the finals and won four championship matches, and proceeded to run away from the competition, accumulating 214.5 points.
It was back-to-back championships for Head Coach Eric Burrell, and the Hawks sixth in the last nine years.
Senior Noah Davis (138 pounds), senior Dalton Bell (152), freshman Thomas Boone (170) and sophomore Tucker Shelton (285) all won their weight classes, as LaRue County beat runner-up John Hardin by 44 points and third-place Meade County by 49.
