The Chadron High wrestling team dropped its season opening dual to Gering, 42-27, on Thursday.

The score is a bit deceiving. The Cardinals won more contested matches than the Bulldogs, 5-4, but Chadron had more open weight classes than Gering.

Kade Waggener, Ryan Bickel, Daniel Wellnitz, and Rhett Cullers all pinned their way to victories. It took Dalton Stewart an 11-10 decision to earn his win.

The Cardinal wrestlers hit the road this weekend for the Cozad Tournament.
