Seven Eagles Place At Hastings Open

Seven of eight Chadron State College’s women’s wrestlers who traveled to Sunday’s Hastings College Open took a place among the top eight in their brackets, as the team sprang back into action after a break.

“Kinsey and Taylor both got big wins this weekend,” said CSC Head Women’s Wrestling Coach Alijah Jeffery. “They continue to improve. This was the first time Maddison and Ryleigh have stepped on the mat for us, and I’m impressed with their confidence. Jeslyn continues to improve as well, and we’ll see her break out very soon. This was the first hiccup for Madison, but she’ll bounce back just fine.”

Both Ryleigh Dye and Maddison Christiansen made their debut performances at 143. Coach Jeffery pointed out that Dye will descend to 136 soon. The pair were added to the roster following the semester break.

Sophomore Kamila Montenegro led the seven placers by taking the 170-pound title. She pinned both the No. 7 and No. 20-ranked NAIA wrestlers, and earned a repeat victory over her Saturday evening opponent from No. 2 Umpqua Community College. Seventh-ranked Sierra Talmadge from University of Jamestown was the 2021 bronze medalist at the NAIA Championships.

Junior Kinsey Smith went 2-1 at 101 pounds, taking third place out of five in her bracket. Both of her wins came against ranked opponents – the No. 11 NAIA wrestler and the No. 7 in junior college.

Freshman Taylor Lindstrom also had success at 101, pinning the No. 7 JuCo opponent from Umpqua, and finishing fourth in the bracket ahead of 11th-ranked Malarie Dominguez of No. 10 Wayland Baptist University.

Dye, who graduated high school in 2021 but just this month signed a letter of intent to wrestle at CSC, took fifth in the field of 11 in the 143-pound bracket. She went 3-2 with two pins and a tech fall.

Junior Jeslyn Jindra and freshman Karstin Hollen were awarded seventh and eighth, respectively, in their brackets, for the first placing this season by both.

The Eagles are scheduled to head back to eastern Nebraska in just four days, for more duals at York College on Friday and another open meet on Saturday.
