Six Wildcat Wrestlers Qualify for State Tournament

By Carter Schultzen

        The Wildcat’s success started at the Sectional Tournament on Saturday February 3rd, at Mapleton. The Wildcats had six wrestlers finish as sectional champions (Beau Klingensmith 106, Carter Schultzen 126, Nate Monahan 132, Wade Mitchell 145, Jake Dennison 170, and Jim Moss 182). The club also had three wrestlers finish second at the meet, advancing them to the District Tournament as well (Brackett Loche 113, Garrett Arment 152, and Anthony Baird 160). Overall, the team placed first and took home the Team Sectional Champions banner.

        The District Tournament was held at Inwood, on Saturday, February 10th. Of the nine wrestlers who qualified only six placed high enough to advance to the State Tournament. Beau, Nate, Wade, Garrett, Jake, and Jim were the state qualifying wrestlers. Bracket, Carter, and Anthony fell short of the qualifying placements. The Wildcat’s club racked up enough points to claim the Team District Champions banner with an extremely close victory over the Falcons of West Sioux.

        Individual State Wrestling began on Thursday the 15th. All six wrestlers advanced to the second day of the tournament by getting a win the first day. Jake Dennison lost his first match, but won his second. The second day of the tournament Beau and Wade both won their first match, Wade won his second, and Beau lost his second. Beau then won his next match, putting him in the 3rd place match on Saturday. Wade qualified to be in the finals match. Garrett, battling a rib injury, won his first match, then lost his next two, putting him in the 7th place match. Jake, Jim, and Nate all lost on the second day, eliminating them from the tournament. On Saturday, Garrett forfeited his match due to his injury, and achieved 8th place, Beau won his match to earn himself a 3rd place finish, and Wade lost a tough match in the finals to become the 2018 runner-up.

The Wildcat’s wrestling team made it to state as well, after defeating Logan Magnolia in the state qualifying duals. Woodbury Central was matched up against second ranked Lisbon in the first round. The wildcats fell short of victory and were then matched up against Interstate-35. The Wildcats lost the dual this round as well and faced Missouri Valley in the 7th and 8th place match. After defeating Missouri Valley, the Wildcats earned themselves a 7th place finish in the state.
