Carrington puts nine into semifinals

Carrington had an impressive first day at the Class B state wrestling tournament on Thursday, despite being dealt some bad news.

The Cardinals throttled Watford City 76-6 in the opening round of the state dual tournament in Bismarck, right after hearing that heavyweight Bradee Schroeder didn’t pass skin checks. That result means the freshman with a 31-12 record who was seeded fourth won’t get to wrestle all weekend.

“It’s very disappointing for him and the team,” Carrington coach Josh Kerbaugh said. “He’s a very important part of the team. We’re using it as a positive. It fired us up and made us focus even more.”

No kidding.

Carrington responded by putting an astounding nine individuals into the state semifinals. And it didn’t take any upsets, either, as the Cardinals entered the tournament with 10 wrestlers seeded in the top four. Schroeder may have been No. 10.

“We’re not crying over spilled milk,” Kerbaugh said. “We’re gonna keep moving forward.”

Carrington leads after the first day with 94.5 points, finishing ahead of South Border (84) and Pembina County North (72).

Making the semifinals were Mathew Neumiller (113), Bryce Carr (120), Joe Bakke (126), Chaz Bauer (132), Patrick Freeman (138), Billy Holtan (152), Brett Lyman (160), Bridger Anderson (170) and Riley Lura (182). All nine wrestlers had at least one pin.

“I think it was a great team effort, that’s for sure,” Kerbaugh said. “We set our goals high. Right now, we’re on the way to achieving them.”
