The Chadron High wrestling team dropped both of their duals in their final home action of the season on Thursday evening.

The Cardinals fell to Douglas 38-27 and lost to Custer 51-19.

Kade Waggener, Ryan Bickel, Daniel Wellnitz, and Rhett Cullers grabbed wins against Douglas and as a team Chadron won more contested matches than the Patriots.

Cullers, Waggener, and Sawyer Haag all earned wins against Custer.

Chadron will have a week off before heading to Ogallala next Saturday for sub-districts. The sub-districts is a new format intended to minimize the amount of wrestlers in one location.

The top four wrestlers from two sub-districts will meet in an eight person district bracket to determine state qualifiers.
