Senior Keaton Long of the West Central Area/Ashby/Brandon-Evansville wrestling team is the Olson Oil Company Athlete of the Week.

Long recorded four pins, one technical fall and a decision in a 6-0 week as the Knights remained unbeaten in duals (15-0) and captured first place at the KMS duals.

Long started his week with a pin (:26) of Brady Cardwell in the Knights 63-12 win over Morria Area/Hancock/Chokio-Alberta on Tuesday.  He followed that with pins over Cody Wheeler (4:28) in a 63-13 win over Wadena-Deer Creek, and Mason Meyer (2:58) in a 69-6 win over Breckenridge on Thursday in a triangular hosted by the Cowboys.

In the KMS duals on Friday, Long pinned Duncan Marquet (1:46) of Quad County as the Knights posted a 58-17 win, won a 17-2 technical fall over Jesse Fenton in their 33-29 win over ninth ranked Pipestone Area, and took a 9-4 decision from Wyatt Jones as West Central Area/Ashby/Brandon-Evansville defeated fifth ranked KMS 39-18.

Long recorded his 100th career win during the KMS duals.
