On Jan. 27, junior Cole Dejean competes in the crosstown wrestling event in the CMR fieldhouse.

On Feb. 10, the Rustler Wrestlers arrived in Billings going toe to toe with other high schools from around the state.

The Rustlers have shown great skill and dedication this season, with more than 20 members of the team qualifying for state. In the end, the Rustlers ended up scoring 126 points and landing themselves in 8th place.

As the end of the season approaches, every weight class competes so they can go to divisionals to qualify for state. The wrestlers who don’t win for their weight class train for the next season, while the athletes who will compete at the state tournament practice in preparation for the ultimate competition of the year.
