ST. PAUL - Three Willmar wrestlers will compete in Class AAA semifinals matches today during the Minnesota State Wrestling Tournament at the Xcel Energy Center.

Willmar's Israel Navarro won two matches at 120 pounds on Friday and will face Northfield's Drew Woodley in the semis.

At 132 pounds, Clay Carlson won both his Friday matches by technical fall and will wrestle Stillwater's Trey Kruse in the semifinals.

Cael Carlson won twice at 138 pounds and wrestles Anoka's Colby Njos in today's semis.

In Class AA, Litchfield's Jerry Simes earned a spot in the 120 semifinals with two decisions on Friday.

United's Peyton Mortenson will wrestle in the 160 semifinals after winning two decisions Friday.

Litchfield's Chase Liestman also earned a spot in the Class AA 285 semifinals with two wins—one by major decision and the other by pin in 1:31—on Friday.

In Class A, KMS' Will Magaard won by fall in just 51 seconds to open the tournament, then notched a 10-3 decision to advance to the 106 semifinals.

Four BBE Jaguars will wrestle in Class A semifinals on Saturday.

BBE's Blaine Fischer secured a spot in the 113 semifinals, advancing on a first-round forfeit and then a 6-4 sudden victory in the quarterfinals.

Fischer's Jaguars teammate, Canon Swanson, wasted little time wrapping up his 120 semifinals berth, winning both his Friday matches by pin, one in one minute and the other in 1:18.

Another Jaguar competitor is in the semifinals as Tyler Bents recorded a fall and a decision at 132.

And a fourth Jaguar will try and keep his state championship hopes alive when Adam Jaeger squares off in the 152 semifinals after a pin and a decision on Friday.

Consolation quarterfinals begin at 9 a.m. Saturday and championship semifinals begin at 10:15 a.m. Consolation semifinals are at 12:15 p.m. and third- and fifth-place matches begin at 4 p.m.

Individual championships begin at 6:30 p.m.
