They were able to march in the parade and were able to don medals for their 2013-14 performances. The three Melcher-Dallas wrestlers that competed on Southeast Warren’s squad all found their way to the podiums in their respective weight classes on Saturday. Alex Mitchell at 145 pounds fell in his fifth place match to Zach Axmear of English Valleys, 12 – 0, but his prior hard work was enough to earn him sixth place honors. Jacob Hoch wrestled for third place, but lost to Cody Kingery of Underwood via fall to finish fourth in the state at 152 pounds. Ty Schneider also wound up sixth place at 195 pounds. Full results for all of our wrestlers can be found on KNIAKRLS.com under Today’s Sports.
