Cameron Wilkinson and Jayden Arehart earned medals on Friday at the Sargent Invitation.
Wilkinson was never on the mat longer than 64 seconds as he quickly won the 106-pound division. He pinned his first two opponents in 50 seconds before pinning JD Meeks in 1:04 to capture first.
At 152 pounds, Arehart used a 7-0 decision over Ryan Lauby of Overton to finish in third place. The sophomore's only loss of the day was to Bode Jensen of Burwell in a 12-5 decision. Arehart had two pins Friday, incuding a 3:07 win over Ben Beard of North Central and a 40-second pin of Tyler Wolfe of Broken Bown.
Kaleb Pofahl nearly wrestled back for a medal. He pinned Kaden Benson of Cambridge in the first-round at 145 pounds before losing back-to-back matches against Seth Simants of Stapleton and Ty Richardson of Ainsworth.
