SIBLEY - The entertaining Cherokee Braves wrestling squad racked up a first-place finish, a second-place finish, two third-place finishes, and four fourth-place finishes at Saturday's rugged Sibley-Ocheyedan Wrestling Invitational.
Anderson pinned Tyler Top of MOC-Floyd Valley in 1:28, pinned Tyler O'Connor of Sibley-Ocheyedan in 1:43, and pinned Dylan Rolfes of Marcus-Meriden-Cleghorn in 2:21 for his title.
Letsche beat Cody Cameron of Alta-Aurelia 14-5, beat Kyle Anderson of MOC-FV 2-1, and then lost 3-2 to Gunnar Klinker of Sheldon-South O'Brien in the title tilt.
Zeimen was pinned in 3:42 by Josh Wilson of MOC-FV, and then pinned Jed Van't Hoff of West Lyon in 1:40, pinned Dillion Kunneke of Ridge View in 1:08, and pinned Manuel Murillo of A-A in 3:48.
Cherokee's Andy Pitts was fourth at 120 with a 2-2 record, Hunter Morrow was fourth at 126 with a 2-2 record, Gabe Conley fourth at 182 with a 2-2 record, and Miah Back fourth at 285 with a 2-2 record.
Also for the Braves, Jose Morales was fifth at 220 with a 2-2 mark, and Alexx Maurer sixth at 170 with a 1-3 record.
MOC-FV won the team title with 173 points, followed by Ridge View 159, Sheldon-SOS 147, S-O 141, Cherokee 135, MMC 123, A-A 85.5, Graettinger-Terril 62, and West Lyon 43.
"The team wrestled well today," said Cherokee coach Austin Todd. "We had an injury to Trevor Devitt which hurt us, and a few breaks that didn't go our way. Zac Anderson really came to wrestle today and getting a pin in every match. First-time wrestler Luke Zeimen is creating an identity for himself by earning some pins."
The Braves host the annual Cherokee Paul Fuhrman Wrestling Invitational Saturday, with action beginning at 11 a.m. at the WHS gym featuring nine area teams.
