Dexter wrestlers go 3-2 in Marshfield Duals; Waldner stays unbeaten, takes down state champ

The Dexter Bearcats went 3-2 Saturday against a talented field of competitors at the Marshfield Duals wrestling meet Saturday at Marshfield.

Dexter faced six wrestlers who won all-state medals in the Class 2 state tournament last winter and three teams that finished in the top 20.

The Bearcats beat Bolivar, who finished second at state, 34-32; 36th-place Owensville 65-18, and Hollister 66-12. Mexico, who placed 12th last year, beat the Bearcats 42-36, and 17th-place Sullivan beat them 57-24.

Travis Waldner continued his quest for an undefeated season at 170 pounds, going 5-0, but he had to beat a returning state champion, Hayden Burks, of Bolivar, in the process. Burks won the 160-pound state championship a year ago. Waldner defeated Burks by decision 2-1.

Bryston Pemberton beat state medalist, Canyon Cunningham, of Bolivar, by major decision 9-0, in the 120-pound class. Pemberton finished 5-0 in the tournament.
