While it was the hosting Havre Blue Ponies that dominated this weekends Havre Invite, two Hi-Line programs also saw good things out of their grapplers.

Angelo Flores (112), Geoff Qualls (119) and Cord Anderson (189) all grabbed third place finishes for the Beeters, and Wyatt Brandal (125) finished in fourth.
