Mighty Thunder Wrestlers travel on the road rigorous

Last Friday evening, nine young wrestlers from Beulah traveled to Watford City to wrestle in the Wolves wrestling tournament. Those wrestlers representing Beulah and how they finished are as follows: Mason Riegel third; Daxtyn Eslinger fourth; Mason Mellmer first; Dawson Dutchuk second; Spencer Mellmer first; Shaye Yeager second; Tyrel Mellmer first; Damian Eslinger third; and Jacob Klaudt third.

With only nine wrestlers the Mighty Thunder Wrestlers fell short of winning the team trophy but scored a respectable 58 out of 100 points.

On Saturday morning, the Hettinger Huskies (the new name of their little guys wrestling program) played host to the more than 190 wrestlers that came to Hettinger for the day. Fourteen young matmen from Beulah were at this tournament.

In the 6-and-under division Daxtyn Eslinger finished in fourth place; Dawson Dutchuk finished in the runner-up position with second place; and Mason Mellmer received first place honors and added three pins to his record. In the 7- and 8-year-old division Spencer, Hunter Truedson, Shaye and Hunter Beadle represented Beulah. Shaye finished the day in fourth place; Hunter Truedson received third place honors and added a pin to his record; Hunter Beadle finished one win short of placing first and added a pin to his record; and Spencer was crowned champion and added two more pins to his win column.

The 9- and 10-year-old division included wrestlers Hunter Meyer, Skyler Meyer, Lance Dschaak, Tyrel and Damian. Hunter finished in third place; Skyler, Lance and Damian all brought home second place honors. Lance and Skyler also both added a pin to their win record. Tyrel finished in first place and added two pins to his record in the 9- and 10-year-old division.

Tyrel also wrestled in the 11- and 12-year-old division. He lost one match and won two, one by pin and one by technical fall to take second place. Isaac Ripplinger and Evan Mellmer were Beulah’s two final wrestlers. Isaac had no matches in the 11- and 12-year-old division and was bumped up to the 13- and 14-year-old division. He was awarded first place in his appropriate age division and wrestled very tough in the older age group. He ended the day with a third place finish in an older and heavier division. Evan took second place in his division of the 13- and 14-year-olds.
