DES MOINES - Facing a couple of top-ranked wrestlers on Saturday, Graettinger-Terril/Ruthven-Ayrshire sophomore Cody Thompson had to settle for sixth-place at the 2013 state tournament.

The unranked Titan heavyweight wrestler lost a 3-1 decision to third-ranked Landan Paulsen (52-1) of Woodbury Central. In the fifth-place match he faced eighth-ranked Mitch Gambrill of Clarion-Goldfield for the second time in the tournament.

Gambrill had pinned Thompson in the quarterfinal in the third period.

This time, Thompson lasted the full 6 minutes, but lost a 5-1 decision.

Thompson ends his sophomore season with a 38-13 record and the opportunity to improve his standing over the next two years.
