The Clark Fork Mountain Cats Superior/Alberton co-op had three place-winners at the Owen Invitational wrestling tournament held at Salish Kootenai College in Pablo last weekend, hosted by Polson High School on Friday and Saturday. Medals were awarded to the top six in each class. Overall, the Mountain Cats came in 15th in the 20-team field.

Polson claimed the team title with 202 points, and Lake City from Couer d’Alene, Idaho, was second — just one point behind with 201.

Trey Green led the Cats at the tournament, earning third place in the 182-pound class. He won by a first-period fall in 1:28 over Kevin Aiken of Belgrade to earn the medal.

Jacob Lapinski of Clark Fork won a medal by finishing fourth in the 285-pound class, losing to Justin Olson of Glacier in a first-period fall in the battle for third place. Wesley Buchannen placed sixth at 132 pounds. He lost a 12-2 major decision to Ricky Thomas of Lake City in his final match.
