Beulah-Hazen wrestling has good showing
By Jarann Johnson
The Beulah-Hazen wrestling team did really well at the Levi Wisness tournament in Watford City. Tyler Erickson (160) and Jeremy Leintz (113) collected champion honors. Beulah-Hazen finished third as a team out of nine teams.
Leintz, a senior, did what he always does and dominated the tournament. Leintz hasn’t lost to a North Dakota wrestler all season long. Leintz rolled through the first three rounds of the tournament with pins.
The toughest pin to get was a 1:32 pin over Wyatt Thorton (Watford City). There was only one round in the tournament where Leintz didn’t win by pin, but he still dominated. Leintz topped Dexter Carpenter (Dickinson JV) 19-4 for a tech fall win and champion honors at 113.
Erickson also had a strong day at the Wisness tournament, collecting first place honors. Erickson started the tournament with a 5-1 win over Jacob Alexander (Dickinson JV).
