For the Record

Night Hawk Kyle Burwick topped his high school wrestling career with a 57-0 record and winning his fifth straight ND state title.  He raised his state record victory total to 293 and extended his state record winning streak to 148 matches.  He was also named the Class B Powerade State Senior Athlete of the Year.  The latest Trackwrestling High School Rankings have Burwick ranked #6 in the nation.  Burwick became just the fifth North Dakota wrestler to win five state titles, joining Dave Hilliard of Lakota, Levi Haugen of Minot Ryan, Scott Glasser of Bismarck, and Erik Loepp of Oakes. 

Also placing for the Night Hawks were Conner Andress 7th, Cade Warbis 8th, and Carlos Martinez 6th.  Ben Dalley lost an overtime decision in the quarterfinals to Carrington’s Treston Lura that would have put him in the semi-finals and guaranteed placement.  Sophomore Lura ended up finishing in third place.  Top finishers for Bowman-Beach were Beau Jeffers 1st, and Clay Mattern and Alex Madrigal both finishing 3rd. 

Lisbon won by 26 points as all ten of their wrestlers scored points with three state champs and five others placing.  New Salem-Almont was second with nine of their 13 wrestlers scoring points and they had two champs and six others who placed. 

Lisbon also took first in the dual portion of the tournament by defeating New Salem-Almont 46-25.  Bowman County/Beach finished fifth by downing Hillsboro-Central Valley 45-30.  They lost their first match to Lisbon, 45-22, and then came back to down Bishop Ryan 48-22 to put them in the fifth place match.
