Sanderson Medals Again


Sioux County’s Mike Sanderson added another medal to his collection Saturday, earning third place on the mats at the Sandhills-Thedford Invite.

Sanderson lost his opening quarterfinals match in a 7-0 decision to Justin Schwanebeck of Hyannis but won the next four by fall to finish third in the 170 weight class. He defeated Hayden Anderson of Sutherland in 54 seconds, Josh Gage of Medicine Valley in 3:53 and Wyatt Ervin of Cambridge in 2:56. Sanderson’s third-place match was his longest of the day, but he outlasted Cole Kerner of Sutherland in 4:38.

Sioux County’s only other wrestler to compete, Colton Randall, went 0-2. Randall lost by fall in 56 seconds to Tyce Porter of Anselmo-Merna and by fall in 1:30 to Branson Anderson of North Central.
