HAVRE — Butte Central junior Clay Stillwagon opened this season pretty much the same way he closed the last one.
Stillwagon, who won the Class A state title at 98 pounds in February, took home the 113-pound title at the Havre Invitational on Saturday. He capped the two-day tournament with a 10-4 decision over Logan Pleninger of Havre in the championship match.
Bryce Noctor placed second in the tournament. Havre’s Keegan Kennelly, the wrestler Stillwagon pinned for the state title, pinned Noctor in 2 minutes, 55 seconds in the title match at 106 pounds.
BC’s Zach Hart placed fifth at 138 pounds. He won by forfeit in the fifth-place match.
Maroon Jake Michelotti also wrestled for fifth place. He fell 11-8 to Glasgow’s Eddie Dagget.
The tournament was the season opener for the Maroons, who will be at home for a mixer on Thursday.
