NYM Wrestling: No. 3-A Frazee gets win at New York Mills
Powered by wins from five ranked wrestlers and aided by three forfeits, the Frazee Hornets picked up a 51-18 win over New York Mills at the Sports Center Tuesday night.

One of the better matches of the night was at 125 pounds where Maison Roberts gave No. 9 Lemmon all he could handle before coming up short in a 6-4 decision.
The Hornets are now 8-40 overall in their history against New York Mills.
