HS Wrestling: Bowman County makes fourth straight trip to dual State tournament

In Class B wrestling,  for the fourth straight year, Bowman County is headed to state duals.

The Bulldogs are still waiting on their first state title, but after performing well in Region 4, the team is confident they can hang with anyone.

So these final practices are just about tuning up the little things.

“Little basics, just fine-tuning things, and technique, technique,” head coach Jeff Boynton said. “That’s the most important thing right now. Our conditioning is where we need it. It’s just technique.”

In addition to the dual tournament, Bowman has several wrestlers poised to finish near the top at individuals. Senior captain Clay Mattern is the two seed at 170, and Beau Jeffers is the three-seed at 220. Mattern has been one of the most dominant wrestlers in his class all year, and teammates say Jeffers is performing at his highest level ever.

“It’d just be about the greatest way I could think of ending it,” Jeffers said. “Putting in the work with my team and myself in the weight room, working with the coaches and stuff–it’d be a great way to cap off my senior season and my senior year.”

Bowman will take on top-seeded Lisbon in the quarterfinals Thursday at 1:30 p.m.
