The Philip Scotties competed at the State B Wrestling Duals Tournament in Wagner on Saturday, January 26th, in Wagner.

At this tournament, the wrestlers did not compete for individual wins in the designated weight classes. Here, teams were only scored against other teams. Some individuals, though, wrestled in a higher weight class for practice against different opponents, to fill in an empty weight slot or to strategically win specific matches to earn team points. No individual champions were crowned.

Philip ended up placing eighth as a team. The Scotties had two very close duals that they came out on the wrong end. The dual against Garretson ended in a 33-33 tie. The officials had to go to criteria in which both teams had won the same number of matches, seven, so then went to which team had the most pins, 3-4 in favor of Garretson.

This tournament creates three pools of four or five teams out of the 13 participating teams. Philip lost its first dual to Tri-Valley, which meant the best it could do was seventh place. Philip lost only two duals and the way it is set up with their draw, they received eighth place. The Scotties did not get the opportunity to wrestle five of the teams which placed above Philip.

These duals did start with the 103 lb. weight class in each dual instead of drawing for the starting weight class. Several of the Philip duals came down to the last four weight classes needing to pin all their matches in order for the Scotties to catch up. In the Howard match, the first three of the last four wrestlers earned their pins so the team score was tied going into heavyweight division. Whichever heavyweight won the match, their team would win. Philip won.

Philip had three wrestlers who won all five of their matches; Jordan Smith, Mick Trask and Lincoln Smith. Tucker McDaniel also won all four of the matches he wrestled.
