The Cliff Keen Invitational wrestling tournament held annually is right up there with the best of the best tournaments for Iowa high school wrestling. With teams from all of the Midwest gathering at Independence last weekend, the Linn-Mar wrestling team saw a lot of different faces and placed 13th overall with 181.5 team points.

The lone Lion to advance to a championship match was junior Jacob Wempen. Wempen, wrestling at 182 pounds, fell just short of first place as he was defeated by D.J. Shannon from Christian Brothers College in Missouri.

At 106 points, Bryce Parke placed third while Brandon O'Brien placed seventh. Jack Nauman picked up a fifth-place finish at 126 points in what proved to be one of the toughest brackets in the entire tournament.
