Written by Craig Olson on . Posted in WCA Sports News

The West Central Area/Ashby/Brandon-Evansville wrestling team traveled to New York Mills on Thursday night and lost a dual meet to the Eagles by the score of 57-12.

"The boys put together another tough fought battle tonight," said Head Coach Brandon Gruchow of the Knights.  "I thought we competed really well and wrestled with a lot of energy and enthusiasm.  We're excited that they came out so strong against a tough section opponent.  We have to continue improving, but there was a lot to be excited about tonight.  Our light weights started it off right and it seems when they can come out dominating it provides a boost for the rest of our guys.  We had a couple of our less experienced wrestlers step in to take some forfeits, which is a good reward for their hard work they have been putting in and it saves a match towards their match count."

Gruchow continued, "I was impressed with Hunter Mickelsen and Wyatt Olson's ability to keep the score down to a decision in their matches and proved they know how to wrestle for the team.  All in all it was a great team effort tonight.  As coaches, we were proud to be in their corner.  There were a lot of Junior High/Junior Varsity matches tonight, which is great for our guys.  They also wrestled well tonight, going 9-8 in their dual matches."
