Fargo, N.D. -- In the same day that saw South Dakota State drop its opening dual to Drexel, 26-10, SDSU sent a number of its reserves to compete in the Bison Open. Five Jackrabbits placed on the day, including a pair of runner-up finishes.

Sophomore Brance Simms (133 pounds) went 4-1 on the day, dropping the first-place match to Minnesota's David Thorn, 15-3. A pair of Simms' first four wins came by decision, along with a major and medical forfeit. 

After receiving a first-round bye, Hunter Weddington (197 pounds) pinned Concordia-Moorhead's Delson Saintal at 6:50. Weddington went on to defeat North Dakota State's Thomas Peterson, 3-2 before getting pinned in the championship bout to Minnesota's Scott Schiller at 2:30. 

Freshman Nate Rotert (197 pounds) went 4-1 on the day - Rotert's only loss came to eventual champion, Scott Schiller (Minnesota). Of his four wins on the day, two came by way of decisions, along with a pin and major decision.

Ben Schwery (184 pounds) finished fourth after going 3-2 on the day. Schwery started 2-0 before splitting his final four matches. Schwery fell to MSU-Moorhead's Matthew Lewellen 7-6 in the third-place bout. 

Freshman Luke Zilverburg (149 pounds) went 3-3, finishing in sixth place. All three of Zilverburg's wins came against NDSU foes as he bested Tanner Carlisle, 4-0, Tyler Weyer, 7-5 and Tyler Diamond, 7-5. 

SDSU will compete next weekend in the Cyclone Open.
