Washburn Rural's Dajia Anderson tries to get a grip on Emporia's Trinity Ervin during the first of their 191-pound matches at Friday's Centennial League meet at Seaman. Ervin won that match 9-2 but Anderson came back to pin Ervin in their second meeting with Ervin suffering an injury that forced her to forfeit a third match. Anderson was one of five champions for Rural, which won the team title by five points over Emporia.

It didn’t come as much of a surprise that Friday’s Centennial League girls wrestling title came down to the final match of the night.

Last year’s crown, after all, was decided by a mere one point with Emporia edging Washburn Rural 157-156.

The two traded punches throughout Friday’s meet, each team answering a big win by the other with one of their own.

Instead of having to sweat out the title, however, Washburn Rural went into the last match knowing it had the title wrapped up. After Jaliah Johnson pinned Emporia’s Kiana Flores-Delgado for the 170-pound title, Rural was in position to close out the team title with Dajia Anderson at 191.

Anderson had split her two matches with Emporia’s Trinity Ervin earlier on the night — Ervin taking a 9-2 win in the first meeting and Anderson coming back to pin Ervin in their second showdown.
