East Ridge wrestling: Lyden survives first day at state
It probably wasn't the draw East Ridge's Reid Lyden had wanted for his second trip to the Class 3A state tournament, but Lyden found a way to survive the first day.
Lyden, ranked No. 4 at 120 pounds, faced Prior Lake's second-ranked Tanner Johnshoy in the first round Friday at the Xcel Energy Center and fell 6-4.
Johnshoy advanced to the semifinals with an 8-4 victory over Rochester Mayo's Miles Patton to give Lyden another shot in wrestlebacks.
