Everyone contributed to the team win 13 Varsity Placers and 2 JV placers.

145 Junior Devon Myers 1st place. He came in unseeded. His first match was against the 1 seed, it really wasn’t close 9-2 final.
182 Junior Chase Dyer 1st place. He came in as the 2 seed and handled his business. It’s his first tournament at 182 and he looked sharp, beating the 1 seed with a final of 5-0.
113 Junior Bailey Larson 2nd Place. Had a solid day. His only loss came in the final to a opponent ranked in the state.
195 Junior Luke Williams 2nd Place. Had a great day. He had the one seed a state qualifier last year on his back in the 3rd period. I’m partial but he didn’t get the call on that one.

132 Freshman Owen Ashworth 4th Place. His first time at the podium in HS. I don’t expect it to be his last.
152 Sophomore Gianni Carey 4th Place. Had a solid day in a tough weight class. The young man does everything asked of him.
