The Chadron Cardinals’ wrestlers saw some of the best the state has to offer Friday and Saturday in Valentine, but did manage to place two wrestlers.
Riesen was the highest placing Cardinal, finishing second-place at 170-pounds after being pinned by Valentine’s Lane McGinley.
Jake Lemmon was the only other Chadron wrestler to place, finishing in sixth-place in the 145-pound class. Lemmon was pinned in at the :24 mark of his fifth-place match with Winner, South Dakota’s Sam Kruger.
The team travelled to Mitchell Tuesday night, but results were not available at time of publication.
