MADISON -River Falls wrestler Tyson Bystrom will wrestle in the consolation round today at the WIAA State Individual Wrestling Meet at the Kohl Center.

Bystrom lost his quarterfinal match to Waunakee's Josh Wipperfurth at 195 pounds early Thursday evening. He led 4-1 and 5-2 but Wipperfurth was able to tie the match with an escape and takedown in the third period. In extra period, Wipperfurth scored a takedown at the edge of the mat for the sudden death win.

Bystrom still has a chance to place as high as third. He starts this journey this morning in the consolation round against Janesville Craig's Zak Kurtz. Bystrom has to win two matches today to place.
