Story by Amanda Koubek

The Broncos wrestling team started the new year with the Franklin Invite, and a gold medal in the 160-pound class. Illness sidelined two athletes this week.  Heading south allowed the wrestlers to see different competition than they’ve seen so far this season, including a few Class A and B schools.

At 106 pounds, Charlie Bassett(2-13) was pinned by Jesse Duba of Friend in 0:40 in the first round. He was later pinned by Landon Klasna of North Platte St Pats in 2:00.

Down at 145 pounds, Tony Martinez (0-17) was pinned by Hunter Riley of Axtell in 2:42, and faced off against Cameron Claussen of Kearney, and was pinned in 1:18.

Seth Simants (22-2) brought home a gold medal in the 160-pound bracket after getting the fastest pin of the day over Creed Johnson of Wilcox-Hildreth in 0:14; then getting a win of 17-1 (technical fall) in 3:09 over Josh Mapes of Alma. Seth then earned another tech fall win of 16-1 over Eduardo Gonzalez of Minden in 2:10 in the semi-finals. And Seth grabbed the gold by pinning Joseph Felix of Alma in 1:56. This was Seth’s 130th career win. 

The Broncos have back-to-back meets this week with a quad at Mullen on Friday evening and then the Knights Invitational at Dunning on Saturday.
