BARRETT -- Maison Roberts and Shane Novak both won section titles and were joined by Max Carlson and Tyler Ehnert, as New York Mills will send four wrestlers to the Class A state wrestling tournament this weekend.


Novak, a runner-up at state last season, was no surprise, but he almost got one in the section 6A final versus Wadena-Deer Creek's Mitch Steffens.

Steffens jumped out to a 4-0 lead, but Novak roared back with six unanswered points to take the title.
