INDEPENDENCE — After a dual with Burlington on Monday, the Royster Rockets kept a busy week going on Tuesday evening when the squad traveled to Independence for a wrestling mixer. The Rockets joined teams from Caney, Cherryvale, Coffeyville, Fredonia, Iola and Parsons.
“We had an awesome night in Independence. The kids are still doing a great job of cheering for each other,” Royster head coach Rusty Emling said. “I saw a big improvement from the first meet from this one, which had many of the same teams. We had a number of wrestlers that beat kids that we lost to (in Fredonia).”
