Several Crimson wrestlers took to the mats at Xcel Energy Center Friday and Saturday to complete at the state individual wrestling tournament.

Crimson freshman Joey Thompson won both of his matches on Friday to enter Saturday’s placing matches. He lost to Stillwater eighth grader Reed Ballentyne (45-0) and ended the day 1-2, good enough for 5th place in AAA.

Other Crimson to compete at the AAA matches were Adam Skogman, Gavin Peterson, Aacoda Aitkin, Jack Bendt, and Issac Boehmer.

Congrats Joey, and to all participants!
