Despite illness and injury, the Custer wrestling team was able to place in a number of weight classes over the weekend.
The varsity team competed in the Hot Spring Invitational Dec. 20-21, where senior wrestler Clayton Wahlstrom earned another title, taking the 182 weight class championship title.
A number of other wrestlers earned places in the final rounds. Micah Grace (113 pounds) took fifth while Blake Jensen (126) took seventh and Chasen Cole (132) took second. Forrest Lewis (145) earned seventh place while David Sigdestad (195) earned second and Mike Murray (220) took third.
“Most of the competition was the same kids we have been seeing,” said coach Jared Webster. “But there were some kids from Nebraska and Wyoming we hadn’t seen before.”
While the varsity team was in Hot Springs, the junior varsity team got the chance to gain some experience at the Lakota Nation Invitational on Saturday, Dec. 21. Chance Dooley (106) took third place at the invitational while Blake Hanson took fifth.
The Wildcats were supposed to travel to Belle Fourche for a quadrangular against the Broncs, Spearfish and Rapid City Central, but the meet was cancelled.
