(Neb.)-Hill, Arias, Bebus Place In Top Five At Colorado Mesa Invite
GRAND JUNCTION, Colo. – Chadron State College's Mike Hill, Leandro Arias and Jordan Debus had solid performances at the Colorado Mesa Wrestling Invitational Saturday in Grand Junction, Colo.

He pinned his first two foes and then earned a sudden victory decision before dispatching Western State's Kyle Graulus by a 4-2 decision in the third place match.
Arias went 4-1 at 141 pounds. He won his first two matches before suffering a tight 2-1 decision to Cody Cole of Western State. Arias rebounded, though, and won two straight decisions to claim third place.
Debus, a junior from Mitchell, easily won his first two matches at 184 but Zack Slotten earned a 3-2 decision to drop him to the wrestlebacks. While there, Ryan Swanson outscored Debus 16-12 but Debus claimed fifth place after picking up a forfeit victory over Khymba Johnson.
