ST. PAUL — Delano senior Tucker Sjomeling captured his third state championship Saturday night at the Xcel Energy Center in St. Paul, winning the 132-pound bracket at the Class AA State Wrestling Tournament.

Sjomeling won a 9-1 decision over Fairmont/Martin County West freshman Payton Anderson in the championship match. The senior put an exclamation point on the win and his career with an awkward back flip, something he just learned to do in practice.

The new first-place medal in Sjomeling’s collection now joins the 106-pound championship medal he won as an eighth grader and the 126-pound championship medal he won as a junior.

Sjomeling was one of five Tigers who participated at the state tournament.

Also finding the medal podium were sophomore Tanner Kroells, who captured the third-place medal at 120 pounds, and junior Steven Hajas, who finished fourth at 220 pounds.

Senior heavyweight Walker Russek and eighth-grader Carson Tschudi both won their first matches in what was the first state tournament for both, but neither was able to medal.
