Wildcat junior Teddy Pierce (138) decisioned fellow junior Isaac Haman of Kasson-Mantorville 7-6 to take third place at last weekend’s state high school wrestling tournament at the Xcel Energy Center in St. Paul.  Pierce won his opening round match, lost in the quarterfinals and then won four straight matches in the wrestlebacks to claim the third place trophy.  Junior Adam Klick (220), after trailing throughout most of his opening round match, surprised his opponent and the crowd with a late pin in the third round to win his opening round match.  Klick lost his next two matches and did not place.  Senior Kyle Schoenecker (195), appearing in the tourney for a record-tying sixth year in a row, lost his first round match.  Since Schoenecker’s first round opponent lost his next match, Schoenecker did not get the opportunity to participate in wrestlebacks.  Senior Aaron Sistrunk (132) was pinned in his opening round match and lost his second match by major decision and did not place.  Wildcat head coach Shawn Frederixon missed most of the tournament due to a short illness, but had now recovered.
