LAS VEGAS – Two South Dakota State wrestlers advanced to the second day at the Cliff Keen Invitational in Las Vegas.
Brance Simms at 133 pounds and Joe Brewster at 165 both advanced, but took different paths to Day 2.
Simms opened the day with a first-round loss to Chasen Tolbert of Utah Valley by 12-2 major decision. Simms rallied, however, winning three straight matches by decision. He knocked off Army’s Charles Costanzo, 6-2, the most points scored by either Simms or his opponent during the streak. Next, he edged Esteban Gomez-Rivera of American, 3-1, and then completed his day by topping Western Wrestling Conference foe Kasey Garnhart of Wyoming, 4-1.
