Two wrestlers earn medals
Published: Thursday, February 28th, 2013
The wrestling season ended over the weekend with two Wildcats returning home with a medal from the state tournament in Aberdeen.
“We did really well,” coach Jared Webster said. “We got some points on the board, brought back medals and wrestled well. We haven’t gotten that high in standings in a while.”
Senior wrestler Dylan Severyn took sixth place in the 152-weight class after losing to Faulkton Area wrestler Kent Hall, 6-4.
“Dylan lost his first match and had to come back tough,” Webster said. “He came back strong and won his next three matches.”
Junior wrestler Clayton Wahlstrom took third in the 170-weight class in an overtime win against Kyle Scofield from Flandreau, 11-4.
“When he was in the semifinal, he was beat by the state champion 1-0,” Webster said. “It was a really close match but he worked hard for this third place. He did great.”
Chasen Cole and Clay Seidler were both beat out earlier in the tournament by tough opponents.
