FARGO, North Dakota — Stanwood High School rising junior wrestler Riley Van Scoy finished seventh in the Cadet Greco-Roman competition at the Cadet & Junior National Championships on Thursday at Fargodome on the campus of North Dakota State University.

Van Scoy, who placed fourth at Mat Classic XXX in February and was a key member of Team Washington’s Cadet Duals team earlier this summer, defeated former teammate Jacob Inton (Sammamish) via pinfall in his opening bout in the consolation bracket.

A defeat to Missouri’s Tyler Ross via technical superiority in the consolation semifinals dropped Van Scoy into the seventh/eighth-place match, where he pinned Pennsylvania’s Keegan Rothrock :29 seconds into the bout for the win.

Lake Stevens rising senior 170-pounder Isaac Gust also had an eventful day in Fargo on Thursday, winning three consecutive elimination bouts in the Junior consolation bracket to continue into Friday’s tournament finale.

Gust beat Illinois’ Liam Reardon via technical superiority in the round of 64, but then fell into the consolation bracket after an 11-0 loss to Georgia’s Vincent Baker.

Gust kept plugging, and sandwiched a pair of pins around an 11-9 victory over Arizona’s Ryne Lewis to reach the consolation round of 8. He’ll square off with Illinois’ Luke Silva on Friday in another elimination bout needing at least three more wins to join Van Scoy and Glacier Peak rising junior Kiley Hubby as locals to secure a top-8 placing.
