Keegan wins fifth LNI Championship


Garrett Keegan, a senior at Dupree High School, won his fifth individual Lakota Nation Invitational wrestling championship on Saturday night, defeating Hill City Ranger Cody Siemonsma at the 138-pound division by decision. Keegan was also named the “Most Outstanding Wrestler” of the tournament. Seventh grader Chris Kessler got the chance to wrestle under the lights in the Civic Center for the 106-pound championship. Kessler defeated Todd County sophomore Tobias Weddell for the championship.

Junior Harold Red Owl finished third along with eighth grader Rylee Knight at 120 pounds. Eighth grader Tiegen Gray and Calvin Traversie both finished the tournament sixth at 116 and 153. “I was really impressed with how the boy’s wrestled,” said Head Coach Josh Schrempp. “It was a good tournament.”

The grapplers get a week off and will next head to the Hettinger Tournament on January 4-5 and to the Stanley County Quad on January 7.
