HAVRE -- Jett Jones, a two-time Montana high school state wrestling champion from Sidney, will continue his career at Montana State University-Northern.
Jones wrestled at the Class A state meet all four years of his high school career, placing third at 160 pounds as a sophomore and finishing his career with back-to-back titles his junior and senior seasons at 182 and 205 pounds, respectively. Sidney won the Class A team title in Jones' sophomore, junior and senior seasons. The Eagles broke the Class A scoring record in 2019 and then re-broke it in 2020.
Jones is joining a MSU-Northern program that placed seventh at the Cascade Collegiate Conference tournament in February and advanced three wrestlers to the NAIA national championships, including Nick Kunz, a Helena Capital alum who won the national title at 125 pounds.
The CCC delayed its fall sports seasons in response to the coronavirus outbreak, but no decisions have been made on the 2020-21 wrestling season.
