Head coach Jim Love commented on the win over the Falcons...."W-K was a nice win! We had some key victories from several kids. Chris Collett started it off with a fall and that is a great way to start the meet to get the kids fired up! Alex Fishbaugher had a hard fought OT victory and Conner Hanson had a strong patch for a decision, Josh Jones at 152 pinned a kid that had beaten him in the Winona Tournament that was huge! Tom Henry got his first action of the year with nice victory! Niko Anderson won by decision, but when the HWT match started we where down 33-30. Dalton wrestled a tremendous match and with his decision we had a 33-33 tie and he win came from the 4th criteria most wins which was 8 FCLMC and 6 W-K. "
