Perham’s Dawson Kellogg continues to ride the wave of momentum and has secured a spot in the Class AA semifinals after a 5-1 decision victory over Becker’s Jaylin Hildebrandt in the quarterfinals. “It feels good. I’m a freshman and I just went out there and did the best that I could,” Kellogg said. “Whatever happens, happens.” Perham head coach Robb Moser described Kellogg as a gamer and said it was a trait that he noticed in Kellogg from his days as an elementary school wrestler. Moser said Kellogg has the ‘it’ factor of just being able to relax and perform. He thinks it’s great for this year and for future years. “Dawson is having an awesome weekend. He has been on a roll for the whole month of February and a half of month of January. He is really putting it together,” Moser said. “Teams are scouting him out right now and he is still beating them. He is a gamer and there is no question about that. It’s a lot of fun for him right now. He is riding high.” Kellogg expected Hildebrandt to come out aggressively, which played perfectly into Kellogg’s style. It worked out well for Kellogg, who took the lead in the second period. “That’s the way I wrestle and we matched up well,” Kellogg said. “It felt good, because I had a confidence booster and I had my choice in the third period. I felt really confident about it.” Kellogg built on his momentum in the third period, getting an early escape. He turned that into a two point takedown, closing out with a 5-1 decision win. Kellogg has exceeded expectations as a ninth grader wrestling at the 182 pound class. He started out the season, suffering a couple of tough losses, but quickly turned those into wins. He entered the tournament with a 34-6 record. Moser said a lot of ninth graders wrestling at that class will make a lot of mistakes, which is what happened to Kellogg early. Kellogg didn’t envision making it this far when the season started. “At the beginning of the year I started losing and thought it was going to end up bad,” Kellogg said. “I started winning and it just kept going.” Moser said around the first of the year those mistakes started to disappear. He said Kellogg is not a lot of flash and has an amazing cradle. “He makes few mistakes and has good positioning,” Moser said. “His defense has improved so much. Part of it is, we don’t worry about weight cutting so much. He has good practice partners and he has improved leaps and bounds over the last two months.” Kellogg will wrestle Totino-Grace’s Jared Florell. Florell enters the match with a 39-2 record, while Kellogg is 36-6 overall. Kellogg was one of three Yellowjacket wrestlers that advanced to the tournament’s final day. Zach Peterson and Ty Moser advanced through the wrestleback round after suffering defeats in the quarterfinals. Peterson found himself in a thrilling match with Luverne’s Solomon Nielson. Nielson got a takedown in second period and an escape in the third. Nielson held off a couple of shot attempts from Peterson, earning the 3-1 win.
Peterson rebounded with a victory over Orono’s Danny Striggow in the wrestle backs. Peterson will wrestle Annandale/Maple Lake’s Trae Bedford in the wrestleback quarterfinals. It was a tough break for Ty Moser in his quarterfinal match against Watertown-Elysian-Morristown/JWP’s Will Storch. The two were knotted at one in the third period, but it was Storch, who got the late takedown with 10 seconds remaining in the third period. He held on and earned the 3-1 decision. Moser wasted little time in picking up his 101st career victory. He took down Monticello’s Matt Baloun in the wrestlebacks. Moser quickly worked out in front of Baloun, taking control of the match, winning it, 8-3. New Ulm’s Hunter Ranweiler earned an 8-3 decision win over Dylan Fudge at 138. It was a scoreless first, but Fudge picked up an escape point and a point on a stalling call. However, Ranweiler got the takedown and nearfall points, building a second period lead. He added to it in the third, winning the match, 8-3.

Huss earned the 13-6 decision win. Gabe Bellefeuille received the opportunity to compete again at 113, after falling in the opening round. However, he suffered a 9-0 major decision defeat to Kasson-Mantorville’s Jared Johnson. Peterson and Moser will wrestle in the wrestleback quarterfinals, beginning at 9 a.m., while Kellogg will wrestle in the semifinals, set for a 10:15 a.m. start at the Xcel Energy Center in St. Paul.   Class AA Quarterfinals Perham Results 138: Hunter Ranweiler (NU-L) def.
