BROOKINGS, S.D. — Billings high school products Vince Salminen and Trent Sprenkle both won individual titles at the season-opening Warren Williamson/Daktronics Open college wrestling tourney here Saturday.
Both Salminen (157), a Skyview graduate, and Sprenkle (125), a Senior graduate, wrestle for North Dakota State, a Division I wrestling team.
Salminen started his senior season by pinning his first two opponents and in the semifinals he won a major decision. In a rematch of last year’s final, won by Salminen, the NDSU standout defeated unattached Marcus Edgington 3-1.
Sprenkle won his first bout by technical fall and his next two by majority decision. Sprenkle defeated teammate Justin Solberg, who competed unattached, in the final by an 8-2 score.
