Panther Cole Jividen (above) works on top of Dylan Swenson of Oakland-Craig Friday morning in a Class C 113-pound consolation round match at the 2016 NSAA State Wrestling Championships.  Jividen would lose the match late by pinfall to finish 0-2 in Omaha.  The Fillmore Central senior drew a tough opening-round assignment against defending State Champion Jordan Kelber of Valentine, who would go on to finish third this year.  Jividen ends his high school wrestling career with a record of 113-63.  Panther R.J. Hinrichs (below) battles with North Bend Central's Brock Ray in their Class C 182-pound consolation match on February 19.  Ray would go on to win the match 15-4.  Hinrichs, just a sophomore, lost his opening-round match at State 11-1 to Wyatt Svara of Bishop Neumann.  Hinrichs ended his second season on the mats at 32-24.
