COLORADO SPRINGS -- Five Chadron State College wrestlers earned a placing at the Rocky Mountain Athletic Conference Championships on Saturday, where the competition was fierce. They were led in rank by redshirt freshman Jacob DeSersa who pinned the 141-pound bronze medal winner from last year's championships, Jared Mestas of Colorado State University-Pueblo.

Just two weeks prior, Mestas in turn had pinned No. 5 Natrelle Demison of Adams State University.

The Eagles finished ninth as a team, scoring 44.5 points. The tournament team champion was California Baptist University, who scored 132.5 ahead of second-place CSU-Pueblo at 110.

CSC's 157-pounder, Jacob Otuafi, also scored a big upset, taking a 4-3 decision over another Pueblo opponent, Kyle Fantin, in the consolation bracket. Otherwise, Otuafi ran into the eventual first and third-place finishers before a 5-2 loss in the fifth-place match.

Chance Karst and Rulon Taylor were the fifth-place finishers at 133 and 285 pounds, respectively. Karst was 1-2 with a pin in the consolations and took the 5th place match by default, while Taylor went 2-2 with all four matches decided by three or fewer points.

Johnny Porter, at 165, placed sixth.

The Eagles have one remaining dual match, at CSU-Pueblo, on Saturday, February 10. Some wrestlers may also attend the Rocky Mountain Open in Golden, Colorado, on Sunday.
