Grand Meadow/LeRoy-Ostrander/Kingsland dropped three matches last week, but the team continued to show improvement, said coach Bill Simpkins.

The Bulldogs fell 42-24 to Cannon Falls, 43-27 to Wabasha-Kellogg and 51-24 to Goodhue in dual meets and placed sixth in a very competitive eight-team Stewartville Invitational Saturday.

Illness has hit the team as Brenn Olson and Blake Olson missed the dual meets, with no replacements for their weights, and other wrestlers missed out on the Stewartville tourney.

Stewartville is "one of the tougher tournaments we are in during the year," said Simpkins. "Placing high here is an accomplishment."

Wyatt Richardson took first place at 195 lbs. Brenn Olson took second at 103 lbs. Placing third were Jace Bunne at 138 lbs. and Blake Olson at 152 lbs. Sam Roe at 160 lbs. and Blake Benson at 220 lbs. finished fourth while Josh Graves took fifth at 120 lbs.

In the dual meets, Bunne had a good win over No. 4 ranked Connor Rohr of Cannon Falls with a 6-1 win by major decision. Other results in the Cannon Fall matchup:
