Both students competed in the seventh-eighth grade division.
Lamborn placed third at 130 pounds. His only loss came to eventual national champion Henry Miller of West Virginia. Bozin took seventh at 105, winning his last match against Ronald Jones of Virginia.
“I am pleased to have both my wrestlers place at the national tournament,” said their coach, Branden Lamborn.

“This is one of the toughest tournaments I have ever competed in,” Lamborn said.
