RONAN — John Crossman booked a trip to Billings.
The Butte Central junior placed seventh in the heavyweight division of the Western A Divisional tournament at Ronan High School.
Crossman pinned Anthony Weary of Dillon in 1 minute, 53 seconds in the seventh-place match. The top eight wrestlers in each division move on to Class A State tournament next Friday and Saturday at MetraPark Arena in Billings.
Crossman, a Butte High transfer, went 2-2 on the day. Because of transfer rules, he did not become eligible to wrestle varsity until midway through the season.
Butte Central’s Gunnar Yelenich and Logan DuBois both went 0-2 on the day, ending their seasons.
Yelenich, a sophomore who missed much of the season with an injury, drew a tough draw and lost out at 120 pounds. DuBois, a freshman, continued to improve after joining the team in January.
