Three Champs at MV-AO Tournament

   After a tough night of wrestling at Pocahontas the Jags headed west to Mapleton to participate in their first individual bracketed tournament. The boys picked it up, putting four wrestlers in the finals in which three wrestlers brought home the Gold. Junior 138 lbs. Trey Lawrence, sophomore 182 lbs. Kyler Fisher, and sophomore Hwt. Clayton McFarland placed first in their respective brackets propelling the Jaguars to a solid sixth place team finish out of eleven Friday night. Senior 170 lbs. Kaelan Lundberg finished as a runner-up in his bracket. Sophomore 106 lbs. Coledon Bethel finished in fourth place, Freshman 145 lbs. Jake Peterson finished in 5th place, and sophomore 152 lbs. Carter Fluckiger finished in 6th place. Freshman 113 lbs. Mason Goodwin, sophomore 126 lbs. Sam Hemmestad, sophomore 132 lbs. Evan McCrady, sophomore 160 lbs. Alex Pudenz, and sophomore 220 lbs. Xavier Nichols did not place. 
    The boys wrestled better compared to Friday night, getting four of our guys in the finals was a good night of work. Clayton finished the night with his first appearance in the finals and first championship with a exciting pin against his tall Hartley Malvern Sanborn opponent after initially being taken down by his opponent. Seeded fourth, Clayton beat number one seed Keaton Hammen(SCC) 4-1 in the semi-finals, reversing a loss that occurred the night before. After the big win by Clayton the whole team mobbed him as he left the mat. That was fun to see. 
    Third seeded Trey Lawrence also wrestled a tough tournament beating Marvin Hildreth(West Monana) 3-0 to capture his second individual title. Trey won last year's title wrestling at 132 lbs. Returning State Qualifier Kyler Fisher won his first title by defeating Manson's Reid Steinberg 3-0 running his season record to 15-0. Both Kyler and Trey wrestled hard, staying in good position. Second seeded Kaelan Lundberg was defeated by highly ranked Tyler Zieman of Cherokee in the finals. 
    Coledon, Carter, and Jake wrestled better to place in the tournament. Like the other boys who didn't place in the tournament they were caught out of position at times to cost them in their matches.
