Ripplinger claims State USA Folkstyle Championship

Saturday morning made for an awesome wrestling experience for one young Mighty Thunder Wrestler. Aaron Ripplinger, along with his brother, Isaac, Mason Mellmer, Spencer Mellmer, Tyrel Mellmer, Damian Eslinger, Jeremy Leintz and Thomas Leintz took part in the USA State Folkstyle tournament at the Bismarck Civic Center Exhibition Hall. However, only Aaron took to the top of the podium.

Aaron went 3-0 en route to the championship pinning his opponents in quarter and semi-finals. He wrestled an exciting finals match, scored back points but not quite get the pin as time would ran out and won the match by a score of 5-3.
