In State Wrestling

Only one of our area Class A qualifiers is still alive after the first day of individual action at the state tournament. That is Maple River/USC 132 pounder Boden Simon. Simon won in the first round, then lost in round 2, but won in the wrestlebacks last night to stay alive. He will now wrestle in the consolation quarterfinals between 9:30 and 10 this morning. You can hear that match on 98.1 FM.
The other Maple River/USC wrestlers, Wyatt Walters, Braxton Simon, Ethan Elvebak, Ethan Evanson, Konnor Harpestad & Cooper Ochsendorf were all eliminated. Blue Earth Area’s trio of Kean Hicks, Adam Schavey & Cory Kitchel were all eliminated as well.
