POCATELLO — Three Bulldog wrestlers went 2-0 on the first day of the 4A state wrestling tournament in Pocatello on Friday, advancing to the semis of the main draw as Sandpoint sits in 14th place after day one.

Hyrum Hunsaker (170) scored a first period pin over Blackfoot, then a 9-2 decision over Century to advance to the semis after his 40th win of the season. The No. 1 seed took care of business, and is now two matches away from a state title.

Andrew Webster (182) made quick work of his two opponents, securing first round falls over Vallivue and Ridgevue to earn a spot in today’s semis, keeping alive his chance for a title.

The biggest surprise of the day for the Bulldogs came at heavyweight, where Evan Stickelmeyer (285) scored a second period pin over Emmett, before notching a hard-fought 6-5 win over Mountain Home, which had upset the No. 2 seed in the first round.

Casey Olesen (113) lost to the No. 2 seed from Vallivue in the opener, then pinned an opponent from Minico with a 30-9 record, before finishing the day with a 5-3 decision over Twin Falls to remain alive in the consolation bracket today.

Sandpoint is in 14th place after day one, with the potential to score some big championship bracket points during day two.
