Jay Davis: Tigers saw top wrestlers at Lee Wolf Invitational

Share

While the Lee Wolf Invitational in Aberdeen on Saturday was a great event for David Jensen and Chase Schoenhard, it was one heck of a learning opportunity for the young Tigers who also competed there.

It was a struggle for most of them. In fact, outside the five Tigers who placed, the rest of the team went a combined 1-21 with the lone win coming via the forfeit route. But, most of the losses do not matter. That the youngsters learned from their experience and get better because of it is what does.

I’m going to fill you all in on all of the state-ranked wrestlers who were in the tournament in a second, but first a little something I picked up.

The tournament had five wrestlers who are the sons of former Tiger wrestlers, and all five placed. They filled the bottom end of the 106-pound division where sixth-place went to Tim Lawrence of Watertown, son of former Tiger Tim Lawrence, seventh went to Aiden Grout of Webster, son of former Tiger Waylon Grout, and eighth went to Chip Shillingstad of Huron, son of former Tiger B.J. Shillingstad. Lawrence, a junior, is ranked seventh in Class A. Grout is a freshman and Shillingstad is just a seventh-grader.

Shillingstad and Grout have big brothers who had big days at the Lee Wolf. Wyatt Shillingstad won the 120-pound division. He is a 22-2 senior and ranked second in Class A. Austin Grout took third in the 145-pound division. He is also a senior and at 26-7 is ranked seventh in Class B.
