Chase Nitcher will wrestle for FHSU

CHASE NITCHER

CHASE NITCHER

Huge score for the Fort Hays State wrestling program and coach Chas Thompson in signing Valley Center’s Chase Nitcher. And no, I have no idea why he is holding that dog in the pic. But that’s what we like to call a Classic Find here at Sunflower Slate. A signing this late means that Nitcher may have been holding out for a bigger program to come along … or it could just mean he was taking his time waiting for the right offer. Either way, it’s win-win. Nitcher absolutely dominated his last two years of high school, winning two state titles and going 94-1. In his career, Nitcher set the Kansas state mark for wins with 179 and is projected to wrestle at 141 pounds for the Tigers.
