Five Jags in Finals; Three Champs

Once again a short handed Jag wrestling squad headed east to Roland Story to compete in the Jim Kinyon Invite. The Jags found themselves with nine wrestlers in the lineup as regulars Alex Pudenz and Carter Fluckiger still battling illness. After a nice semi-final round, five out of nine Jags wrestled their way into the championship match; 113 lbs Jr. Coledon Bethel, 138 lbs senior Trey Lawrence, 182 lbs Jr Kyler Fisher, 220 lbs Jr Xavier Nichols, and Heavyweight Jr Clayton McFarland awaited their chance to win their bracket. Coledon battled hard but lost to ranked Brock Beck(Grinnell) 8-2 and Trey lost a tough one to Kruise Kiburz(Winterset) 5-4. 2nd ranked Kyler wrestled a strong match defeating Reldon Miller(Gilbert) 13-5 running his record to 20-0 for the season, Xavier continued his strong wrestling winning 8-2 against Kamrin Steveson(Grinnell) continuing his streak pushing his record to 12-0. Clayton pulled off a big upset pinning the big Bradley Tolley(Winterest) in the second period by hipping over the big man catching him on his back for the fall. Clayton's record stands at 17-3. 120 lbs sophomore Mason Goodwin finished in fourth place, 126 lb Jr Sam Hemmestad  and 145 Sr, Colton Klingson finished in fifth place, and 152 lbs Jr Evan McCrady finished in seventh place. 
     Overall, the boys wrestled pretty well. We aren't the strongest, physical team so we have to continue working to get out from underneath. At this point with break coming up and wrestling Tuesday night we have to get as healthy as possible to make our stretch run in January and February. It was a fun way to end the day with Clayton pulling off an upset. His opponent had to be at least six foot four and was a state qualifier from last year.
