Cherokee's youthful wrestling Braves placed fifth in the team competition of Saturday's Paul Fuhrman Invitational, won by rated Odebolt-Arthur/Battle Creek-Ida Grove with a 4-0 record in the duals pool play format.

Sibley-Ocheyedan was second with a 3-1 mark, followed by Hartley-Melvin-Sanborn 3-1, Woodbury Central 2-2, Cherokee 2-2, Hull Western Christian 1-3, East Sac County 1-3, and Sioux Central 0-4.

The Braves boasted two double-pin winners in Tyson English at 140 pounds, and Peter Cosgrove at heavyweight. Patrick Loughlin was 3-1 with a pin, and Cosgrove was undefeated with two falls and two forfeits.

Other pin winners for Cherokee were Jack Letsche at 125, Zac Anderson at 135, Tyler Lundsgaard at 171, and Dustin Rosewall at 189.

"It was a different kind of tournament for us, a dual format," said Cherokee coach Jason Wood. "Each team wrestled in a pool of four teams. Based on the teams' record after the first three duals determined what place they wrestled for in the final round."

Cherokee beat East Sac County 54-18, lost 48-31 to tough HMS, lost 72-6 to vaunted OA-BCIG, and then beat HWC 57-18 for fifth place in the finals.

The Braves travel to Spirit Lake Thursday night for a Lakes Conference double dual including Le Mars and SLP, and participate in the Kingsley-Pierson Invitational on Saturday.
