MILES CITY -- The 62nd Cowboy Invitational will wrap up later on Saturday evening, as championship matches have yet to be contested.

MTN Sports caught up with a few guys in Saturday night's title matches to see what a Cowboy title would mean to them.

"Obviously, every weekend that's the goal. Every weekend is the same," Billings West senior Drake Rhodes said ahead of his 126-pound title match against Columbus-Absarokee Cooper Cook. "Hopefully I can just wrestle hard and win this. It means a lot. I want to win the whole thing, but I've got to take it one match at a time."

"It kinds of brings happiness to me," Miles City's Damian Leidholt said. "This tournament means just as much as state to me, just because I like to go out and perform out in front of my hometown. Kind of makes me wrestle better."
