Red Devil wrestlers take third at divisional Tourney

The Dawson County High School Red Devil wrestling team earned a third place plaque at Divisionals Saturday. 

DCHS hosted 11 teams from the Central and Eastern A divisions for the one-day superdivisional tournament.

Havre dominated the tournament with 294 points, but the next three placing positions were extremely close.

Hardin took second with 166, DCHS took third with 162.5 and Laurel took fourth with 161.

Ten Red Devils wrestlers qualified to compete in the state meet which begins Friday in Billings.

Qualifying wrestlers and their divisional placing is as follows: Travis Kinn, second at 132 pounds; Ben  Stortz, second at 138 pounds; Brandon Held, fourth at 145 pounds; Brandt Ackerman, fourth at 152 pounds; Tyler Clapp, second at 160 pounds; Nelson Crisafulli, third at 170 pounds; Casimir Melton, seventh at 180 pounds; Matthew Fulton, eighth at 205 pounds; Keegan Mires, second at 285 pounds; Elijah Marley, fourth at 285 pounds.

Coach Tim Zody said while it seemed odd for DCHS not to have at least one division champion, there were several matchups that he was happy to see go Glendive’s way.

Sophomore Keegan Mires had a good tournament, making it to the championship round. Junior Tyler Clapp earned revenge on a Lewistown opponent to qualify for the championship. Zody noted that he felt Brandt Ackerman and Nelson Crisafulli also wrestled well at divisionals.
