Four Bulldogs still alive at state wrestling tournament
Salina No Baldwin High wrestlers will be going home from this year's Class 4A state tournament with gold medals, but four Bulldogs still have an opportunity to end the season with some hardware.
BHS will have four wrestlers still alive in consolation action when competition resumes Saturday.
Tucker Clark (138) was the only Bulldog to reach the semifinals, but fell to Andale's Tyler Mies. He can finish third with two wins Saturday. Because he reached the semifinals, he's guaranteed a medal.
Levi Green (106), Jon Pratt (145) and Owen Tuckfield (160) went 1-1 in their first two matches. Each wrestler can finish third with four wins Saturday, but needs just two to guarantee a medal.
Ben Morgenstern (113) and Thomas Lisher (126), the team's only other state qualifiers, were eliminated after going 0-2 on Friday.
As a team, BHS is in 33rd place with 12 points. Holton currently leads the team standings with 85 points — 33.5 more than second-place Colby. Action will begin at 9 a.m. with consolation cross-bracketing.
