Unfortunately, the Hornets had none of their six individual qualifiers make it through the first day in the championship bracket, including Tanner Reetz – ranked third at 113 pounds – who had to forfeit before wrestling for not making weight.

Garrett Malstrom, Austin Skillings and Kody Van Den Eykel were able to end the Hornets’ trip on a positive note with three placements.

Malstrom (285 pounds) and Skillings (138) finished third, and Van Den Eykel (185) finished fifth.

“We worked really hard to get here,” Skillings said. “It’s nice to see people placing.”

Byron Byer went 1-2 at 120 pounds, while Grant Jepson also went 1-2 at 126.
