Four Cardinals Place At Cozad Invite

Four Chadron High wrestlers came home with medals from Saturday’s Cozad Invitational.

After dropping his dual match at Gering on Thursday, Ryan Bickel had a big bounce back day taking 3rd at 285-lbs. Bickel opened with a redeeming pin over Sam Rocheleau of Gering in the quarters and was then pinned in semi’s to drop him into the consolation bracket. Back to back pins in the consolation round clinched Bickel’s place on the podium.

Rhett Cullers and Davin Serres both dropped their 3rd place matches to finish 4th at 170 and 138-lbs respectively. Both reached the semifinals before losing tightly contested matches.

Serres lost the Albert Stone of Getting by way of an 11-3 major decision. It was the very same #4 ranked 138-lb wrestler in Class B whom he defeated by major decision on Thursday.

Cullers match was a heartbreaking 2-0 loss to Josh Colgrove of Plattsmouth.

Braden Underwood capped off a solid day by earning a wild 15-12 decision in the 5th place match against Kooper Pohl of Cozad.

Chadron will wrestle Gordon-Rushville and Valentine in a triangular next Thursday in Valentine.
