Dell Rapids wrestlers bounced back in their second dual of the day against Tri-Valley after opening the Madison Quadrangular with a disappointing dual with West Central.
West Central topped the Quarriers 50-18 in a dual that featured only three Dell Rapids match victories.
Wrestling at 170 pounds, Brock Reinhiller earned pinned points for Dell Rapids by defeating Trojan Brendon Jensen in three minutes.
In the 182-pound slot, Dell Rapids’ Reice Tiernan pinned West Central’s Brandon Gray in one minute, nine seconds.
Class A top-ranked Leon Maxwell pinned John Blue of West Central in the 220-pound class in two minutes and 26 seconds.
Rebounding well in their second dual of the day, the Quarriers earned eight wins on their way to a 45-36 win over the Tri-Valley Mustangs.
The Quarriers’ 132-pounder, James Lueders, pinned Lane Hillman in 41 seconds, before his teammate Sutton Adams, wrestling at 138 pounds, pinned Tri-Valley’s Carter Warne in 34 seconds.
Austin Eulberg, wresting at 160 pounds, earned points for Dell Rapids when he defeated Trevor Hallman in a 7-1 decision.
Reinhiller stayed undefeated on the day by pinning Logan Amundson in two minutes and 55 seconds.
Tiernan earned his second pin of the day against Tri-Valley’s Willie Heiberger in one minute and 15 seconds.
Rounding out the Quarrier winners was Jacob Haberger, who pinned Bradly Johnson in three minutes an 20 second in the 285-pound slot.
Dell Rapids’ Maxwell and Jacob Eining won by forfeit at 220 pounds and 182 pounds, respectively.
Saturday, Quarrier wrestlers were in Brookings for the Les Tlustos Invitational.
Maxwell was the lone champion for Dell Rapids. He earned a first place finish in the 220-pound class after pinning Class A’s second-ranked Trey Crisp-Peterson of Washington High School in one minute and 18 seconds.
Reinhiller and Tiernan both earned eighth-place finishes.
"The Brookings Invite is a very tough tournament,” said Craig Jorgensen, Quarrier head coach. “Leon, Brock and Reice wrestled well. We lost some close matches that would have put a few more wrestlers on the award stand. Overall, we are improving and hopefully get where we need to be in a few weeks.”
