Senior Brady Nelson had a strong showing placing fourth at 152 pounds among some tough competition.
Freshman Raphael Eldridge and sophomore Kaleb Fleck also earned sixth place results at 126 and 132 pounds respectively.
Sandpoint head coach Jake Stark was proud of the performance of his younger wrestlers.
Malachi Fleck, Brady Nelson and Isaiah Caralis were the standouts on Saturday, Stark wrote in a text. Some of our younger freshman wrestled really good too, Jacob Albany showed a lot of heart and Carson Laybourne had a big pin at the end of the tournament to close out the night.
Prior to Saturday, the Bulldogs competed in a trio of duals on Friday.
Sandpoint took down Flathead (Mont.) 48-36 and were led by its lightweights who earned pins at 98, 106, 113, 120 and 126.
Overall, the Bulldogs earned pins in eight of the 14 matches to claim the victory.
Sandpoint then took on Timberlake. It was a tight dual with the Tigers, but in the end Timberlake prevailed edging out the Bulldogs 46-42.
We fell short to Timberlake but we had them on their heels the whole time and we held the momentum the entire match, Stark wrote.
Jordan Birkhimer, Malachi Fleck, Blake Sherrill, Brady Nelson, Christian Troumbley-Karkoski all earned pins but it wasnt enough.
The Bulldogs also battled Clearwater Valley, losing 46-34.
Nelson earned his third straight pin during the duals while junior Trevan Adam grabbed a pin at 145.
