Jaden Mohr at 132, finished 2-3 on the day to take six place in his weight class. He had Kimball’s fast pin of the day registering a :22 second fall over a Minatare wrestler. He also won a 6-4 decision over Starr of Gordon-

Stephen Bateman at 195 ended up 4th with his 1-3 record winning by pin and losing 3 times by fall.

at Lingle at the Dogger Invitational."
