    Ord Qualifies 7 Wrestlers to the State Tournament

    Chants Make State Dual Tournament for First Time in History

    The Ord High Wrestling Team finished 4th out of 16 teams at the C4 District wrestling tournament last Friday and Saturday.  The Chants finished with 7 total state qualifiers.  Top 5 team results were as follows.  Valentine-246, Broken Bow-153, Kearney Catholic-138, Ord-127.5, Chase County-125.  The Chanticleer Wrestlers also qualified for the State Dual Tournament for the first time in school history.


    The Chant wrestling team had 2 wrestlers make it to the finals of the C4 District Tournament.  1 of those wrestlers ended up being the tournament champion and both will qualify for the State Wrestling Tournament next weekend.  At 195 pounds, Ethan Gabriel was the tournament champion.  Gabriel faced off against Tysen McDowell from Minden in a battle of two state rated wrestlers.  In fact, there were 3 of the top 6 rated wrestlers in the state in the weight class.  Gabriel pinned the Minden opponent in 1:20.  At 160 pounds Kaden Dawe was the district runner-up and a state qualifier for the Chants.  Dawe met up with state rated Bryson Fisher from Chase County in the finals.  Fisher came away victorious by beating Dawe 6-3.  “Ethan and Kaden wrestled great district tournaments.  Ethan pinned his way through a tournament with 3 state rated wrestlers.  Kaden won a huge semifinal match that will set him up well for the state tournament”, said Coach Justin Swedburg


    Ord had 5 other wrestlers qualify for the Nebraska State Wrestling Tournament in Omaha.  Colton Rowse finished in 3rd place for the Chanticleers at 106 pounds.  Rowse, rated in the state himself, faced off against state rated Lane Schiers from Kearney Catholic.  Rowse pinned the Kearney Catholic opponent at the 2:18 mark.  106 was another stacked weight class. 4 of the top 6 rated wrestlers in the state were at the district tournament in Valentine.  At 170 pounds Gavin Trompke qualified for state and earned the 3rd place medal.  In another bracket with multiple state ranked wrestlers, Trompke defeated Logan Coalson from Bridgeport.  The final score in the match was 5-0.  Kaden Boyce was a state qualifier for Ord, he finished in 4th place.  Boyce was beaten in his final match by Quin Child from Gordon-Rushville.  At 152 pounds Tanner Knight was another qualifier and 4th place finisher in an extremely tough weight class.  Knight was defeated in his match by Joel Meyers from Broken Bow.  In the heartbreak round, Tanner defeated a returning state qualifier from Bridgeport who was a match away from medaling at state.  Knight won the match 10-8 in an exciting ultimate tie-breaker overtime match.  Jacob Lech was the final state qualifier for the Chanticleers, he also was a 4th place finisher.  Lech was defeated by Brady Dawson from Southern Valley by a score of 5-4.  Early in the tournament, Lech lost a close match which made his road to state much more difficult.  Jacob was able to win 3 matches in a row against tough competitors to qualify.  “We qualified 5 of the 6 guys who wrestled in the heartbreak round.  Each one of our guys gave everything that they had, they showed a ton of heart and pride”, said Coach Swedburg


    Many other wrestlers scored points for the Chanticleers at districts.  At 126 pounds Miguel Alvarado went 1-2.  Jackson Ulrich was 2-2 and lost in the heartbreak round to qualify for the state tournament.  Earlier in the tournament Ulrich upset returning state qualifier Cole Ulmer, from Broken Bow, by a 3-1 decision.  In his final match, it truly was a heartbreaker in the heartbreak round.  Ulrich lost 10-8 in sudden victory overtime to Trevor Peterson from Chase County.  At 138 Skyler Key went 0-2.  At 145 pounds Clayton Shoemaker was 2-2.  In his final match Shoemaker injured his ankle and was unable to finish the match or the tournament due to injury.  At 220 pounds and 285 pounds Scott Behnk and CJ Hoevet both were 0-2.  “If it weren’t for the efforts of our guys as a team for each other, we wouldn’t have qualified for the state duals.  We needed a full team effort and we were able to qualify by 2 and a half points”, said Swedburg


    The Nebraska State Wrestling Tournament will begin at 4 PM for Class C on Thursday, February 16th and last until Saturday, February 18th with the state finals beginning at 3 PM.  The finals will be broadcasted live on NET.  Ord also qualified for the Nebraska State Dual Tournament for the first time in school history.  The Chants will wrestle Valentine in the first match-up of the class C tournament.  Ord is one of 8 teams from Class C to qualify for the tournament.  The State Dual Tournament will begin at 10:30 AM for Classes B and C on Saturday, February 25th at the Health and Sports Center on the campus of the University of Nebraska at Kearney.
