After losing to Norton 49-18 in a dual Friday, the Warriors returned to Norton on Saturday to take 7th out of 18 teams at a tournament.
Coach Chad Adkins said that despite Friday’s loss the team wrestled “pretty well.”
Ezra Darnall, Bryce Shults, and Remington Putter defeated Norton opponents at their respective weight classes, he said.
On Saturday, Tyler Palic placed second after losing a hard fought match 3-5 against an opponent from Scott City who was the No. 1 ranked 321A wrestler at 195-pounds.
Adkins was pleased with Palic’s performance against the “best kids out there.”
He said Putter, Adam Kjellin, and Jarrett Johnson were each on match away from placing.
Adkins said the tournament included two “solid” teams from Nebraska, as well as Manhattan and Garden City, the No. 1 and 2 ranked teams in 6A.
“The brackets were very tough this weekend,” Adkins said.
The Warriors wrestle next at 4 p.m. Friday at Halstead
