Dawson Blankenship wrestling at 106# leads off the tournament wrestling Lucas Hueser from Elk Point/ Jefferson.  Dawson started the tournament with a take down on Lucas and was leading the match going into the 2nd period.  Lucas started on top in the second period and would not let Dawson up.  Dawson lost via fall and moved into the consolation bracket.  Next up, Dawson drew a forfeit to advance to the second round of wrestle backs.  Dawson’s next opponent was from Kings County.  Dawson took Dylan Zell down and wasted no time putting his opponent to his back.  Dawson went into the second period against Dylan and Dawson put him to his back and pinned Dylan.  Dawson was then slated against Lane Huls.  Dawson stepped on the mat and took Lane down and pinned his McCook opponent in the first period.  Dawson then drew a Howard opponent, Drew Genzlinger, that he lost to at the Parkston Tournament last week. Dawson lined up against Drew and wrestled tough.  Dawson went ahead 2-1 in the third period and chose down.  Drew tried turning Dawson and was unsuccessful. Dawson avenged his loss last week to win the match move on to the 3rd place match.  Since Dawson wrestles for a team from Minnesota he is only allowed to wrestle 5 matches in a day.  He ended his day with a 4th place finish.
