Wrestling: Eagles handle Wolverines
NEW YORK MILLS --The Eagles wrestling team (13-5) backed up their top 25 QRF ranking in Class A with a dominant 49-25 victory over a partial Wadena-Deer Creek team Thursday night.
The Eagles head into the Park Region Conference tournament this Saturday at Long Prairie with a head of steam having only lost two duals all season.
The following Thursday, Feb. 9, NY Mills will face Osakis in the first-ever Park Region Conference Dual Championship. The meet between the two schools will be held in New York Mills.
Brian Pyle, Tyler Patron and Max Carlson all scored pins against the Wolverines Thursday.
Heavyweight Carlson pinned Mason Lohmiller at 3:05 to put an end to the dual.
Patron wasted no time taking out Caleb Monson, 195 pounds, in a mere 35 seconds.
170-pounder Pyle won by fall over Isaac Malone at 2:16.
The teams were tied at seven and 13 but forfeits at 138, 145, 152 and 182 pounds gave the Eagles all the cushion they needed for the victory.
