BOYS TOWN -- The Beatrice wrestling team went on the road and finished fourth at the Boys Town Invitational on Saturday.

The Orangemen finished with 138 points, which put them behind Blair (195.5), Schuyler (169.5) and Wahoo (154).

"The guys did extremely well medaling eight of the 10 guys that went," said Beatrice Coach Jordan Johnson. "It was an extremely tough tournament with most weights featuring multiple state medalists and ranked guys."

Beatrice got a first place finish from David Duncan in the 285-pound division. He won by medical forfeit over Bellevue West's Ty Reynolds in the championship match.

The Orangemen also got three runner-up finishes. Tanner York finished runner-up in the 106-pound division while Benjamin Garland finished runner-up in the 132-pound division and Jason Stevens finished runner-up in the 182-pound division.

"David Duncan wrestled really well and Tanner York, Ben Garland and Jason Stevens also had a really solid tournament," Johnson said. "They all lost to state medalists or ranked opponents."

Jerad Humble scored a third place finish in the 220-pound division and Drew Arnold finished fourth in the 113-pound division.

"Jerad Humble wrestled extremely well placing third," Johnson said. "Drew Arnold lost to two state medalist by one point and two points. He pinned the fifth ranked kid from Schuyler. He is a solid freshman that has been able to stick with some top guys."

Will Reimer finished sixth in the 120-pound division and Quintin Hartig finished sixth in the 138-pound division.

Beatrice will be in action again on Tuesday when they travel to a dual against Crete.

"This team continues to improve and must do so to reach their goals," Johnson said. "We should have our full team for our dual against Crete on Tuesday."
