Shenandoah’s Chloe Nelson won her girls wrestling bracket Friday, Jan. 20, at the Glenwood Rams Invitational.
Nelson was one of two Shenandoah Fillies in the field while Clarinda also had two athletes in the field, which featured just three teams.

Nelson’s other two matches went the distance. She beat Lauralyse Flint-Spencer of Glenwood 8-0 in round two and then beat another Glenwood athlete, Emily Lundvall, by a 7-5 decision.
Emma Baldwin was also in the field for Shenandoah and lost twice in the 110-115 bracket. Her first loss came to Clarinda’s Kambry Gordon by a 9-0 major decision.
Baldwin and Gordon both lost to Glenwood’s Audrina Johansen. Johansen pinned both Baldwin and Gordon in the first period.
