Defending champion Pierre took early control during the opening day of the Class A state wrestling tournament in Rapid City, advancing six grapplers into Saturday’s semifinals.
The Governors entered the weekend as odds-on favorites, and did enough damage to open a comfortable lead over the rest of the pack. Pierre (96 points) sits comfortably ahead of Aberdeen Central (76) and third-place Roosevelt (69.5). Sturgis (63.5) and Rapid City Central (62) round out the top five.
Pierre moves on Lincoln Turman (106 pounds), William Turman (113), Michael Lusk (120), Jebben Keyes (132), Spencer Sarringar (182) and Quinn Reimers (220).
For Roosevelt, a few early stumbles couldn’t put a damper on the otherwise strong first day. The Riders also advanced six into semifinals: Brandon Carroll (126 pounds), Kobe Kortan (132), Carter Lohr (138), Dan Armstrong (145), Kyle Yasgar (160) and Alex Cappell (220).
Last year’s runner-up, Aberdeen Central, ran into trouble in quarterfinals. The Golden Eagles moved three grapplers onto Saturday’s semis. Brothers Bradley and Braiden Nelson each used a pair of pins to setup their semifinal matches at 170- and 182-pounds, respectively. Jacob Moore also moved on at 106.
Washington’s Hunter O’Connor cruised in his matches to power into the 152-pound semifinals. Lincoln 195-pounder Corey Fichter followed suit. Brandon Valley’s Creighton Klinkhammer (113) and Andrew Sorensen (220) each pinned their way into Saturday’s semis.
Lennox’s Wesley Weischedel (120), Vermillion’s Jacob Hanssen (120) and Lucus Anglin (106), Trey Hage (126) and Carter Kratz (160) from Vermillion also fought their way into the next round.
Class B: C-Hawks in the driver’s seat
Canton took solid steps toward securing the Class B team title, moving on seven wrestlers into Saturday’s semifinal rounds.
The C-Hawks received help from up and down the roster, led by defending state champion John Lemer at 138 pounds. Joining Lemer in the championship chase are Dylan Hanisch (120), Stas Sutera (126), Devin Stork (182), Jaydn Broughton (195), Ryley Ostbye (220) and Payton Smith (285).
Second-place Philip Area — which sits at 63 points behind 74 from the C-Hawks — advanced four grapplers into the semis.
Third-place Parkston (53.5 points) took an efficient route, also with four moving on in the winner’s bracket — and this despite just six wrestlers qualifying to state. Logan Mahoney (120), Blake Bietz (152), Lucas Bietz (160) and Austin Ripp (170) represent the Trojans’ title hopes.
Beresford, which entered the tournament with eight qualified wrestlers and high hopes, struggled to open the tournament. Only defending champion Dakota Galt (132) is still in the championship running.
Watchdog 170-pounder Nick Casperson, top ranked in Class B and 43-0 entering Friday, was caught just 25 seconds into his opening-round match and lost by pinfall to Wolsey-Wessington’s Jesse Mikrut.
Tri-Valley’s Trevor Klinnert (106) and Caden Lamer (113) moved on for the Mustangs. McCook Central/Montrose’s Jerry Kappenman advanced to the 195-pound semis with a pin of Webster Area’s Colton Koslowski (4:13).
