  Knights send six to Individual State Wrestling Tourney  
  by Kris Beuckens

The WCA-ABE wrestlers were in Wheaton last Friday and Saturday for the Section 6A Individual Tournament. There, each wrestler had the opportunity to qualify for this week’s state tournament by placing first or second in their respective weight class and six WCA-ABE wrestlers did just that.

The six WCA-ABE wrestlers qualifying for the individual state tournament were: sophomore Jake Nohre - champion at 106 pounds; senior Royal Crow - champion at 160 pounds; senior Hunter Fick - champion at 195 pounds; sophomore Keaton Long - second place at 132 pounds; junior Blake Amundson - second place at 182 pounds; and junior Buzz Miller - second place at 220 pounds.

Overall, it was a pretty solid couple of days of wrestling as 13 of the Knights’ 14 wrestlers placed in the top six. Other Knights placing at the tournament were: sophomore Tyler Onstad - third at 138 pounds; junior Jake Larkin – third at 145 pounds; junior Sid Kamrath – third at 285 pounds; sophomore Drake Swanson – fourth at 113 pounds; freshman Levi Larkin – fifth at 126 pounds; senior Kyle Mickelsen – sixth at 152 pounds; and senior Koel Seifert – sixth at 170 pounds.
