State Wrestling competition continues in Omaha

February 15, 2013

Bo Slingsby, wreatling at 120 pounds for Ansley-Litchfield meets with Sean Mendlik of Archbishop Bergan in the consolation round.

It was a rough morning for the area Class D wrestlers. Of the 10 wrestlers who entered into the consolation round , only one survived the morning to move to the next step at the State Wrestling finals from the Century Link Center in Omaha. All were hard fought rounds. Each of these athletes gave their all resulting in a number of heartbreakers. Competition at this level is tough.

The following area athletes will be competing in the championship rounds for Class D: Wyatt Lane of Arcadia-Loup City; Calvin Freichs of SEM; Garret Dockweiler of South Loup; Grant Clausen of SEM and Jake Wells of Anselmo-Merna who won his morning match to compete again later today.
