Ki-Be's Del Angel competes at junior nationals

Kiona-Benton’s Cruz Del Angel just missed out on placing at the Junior Freestyle Nationals in Fargo, N.D.

Del Angel lost to Minnesota’s Trey Hable 5-0 and 3-0 — freestyle matches are decided best-of-3 periods or by pin.

Del Angel, who was an unbeaten state champion for Ki-Be last winter as a sophomore, lost his first-round match at 170 earlier this week before coming back with a pair of pins and a 6-0, 6-0 technical fall.
