Bearcat grappler Tyson Hall is entangled in a scramble with his opponent during the NCAA High School League Wrestling Tournament at Minneapolis.

MINNEAPOLIS — Strong performances helped the Ellsworth High School Bearcats wrestling team capture fourth place Feb. 7 during the 2019 North Central Activities Association wrestling tournament.

The meet was a warm-up to the upcoming state high school 3-2-1A regional tournament Friday and Saturday at Beloit High School. Thursday’s tournament gave wrestlers a taste of what’s to come on the road to the state meet the following weekend in Hays. But instead of facing six teams, this weekend’s tournament pits the Bearcats against more than 20.

Beloit easily won the league tournament with 177.5 points, followed by Minneapolis with 124.5 points and Republic County High School with 114.5 points.
