The Central boys wrestling team’s trip to Midland on Jan. 20, for the John Byers Invitational, ended with some solid results for the group, with two top-six placements and the 126-pound title for Braxton Bormann. 


Bormann went 4-0, starting the day with a fall to get to the quarterfinals, where he picked up another fall. In the semifinals, Bormann won a 4-2 decision to secure a spot in the first place match. There, he won a 6-4 decision over Lohman Duffy from Dubuque. 


Jamison Feickert finished sixth at 113 pounds, making it to the semifinals with a 7-2 decision in round one, followed by a fall in the quarterfinals. He was pinned in the semifinals, then lost the next two matches by fall to place sixth. 


Jonah Burns wrestled at 106 pounds, finishing 0-2 after two pins, and Isaiah Burns also went 0-2 at 157, with an 11-9 decision loss and the other by fall. 


At 132 pounds, Collin Jaster was 1-2 with a win by fall and two losses by fall. 


Lastly, Preston Kulper went 2-2 at 144 pounds, including two wins by fall.


“We brought some young kids to a tough tournament and wrestled well. Everybody has come a long way since the beginning of the season and are continuing to grow. I’m very proud of everybody’s efforts and I am looking forward to this last push to the postseason,” said coach Joe Koehn.


The Warriors will compete in the Upper Iowa Conference tournament at South Winn on Jan. 25.
