The past weekend brought the best of the best the state of Minnesota has to offer together for the pinnacle of what wrestling has to offer. The Minnesota State High School League Wrestling Tournament.
The West Central Area/Ashby/Brandon-Evansville team came up a bit short of a state berth this season, however five of its members created their path to state last week at the Section 6A tournament in Wadena. Hunter Gruchow, Anthony Sykora, Jordan Lohse, Nathaniel Kisgen and Devin Stone joined the other 667 grapplers in St. Paul to find out who was who in the grand daddy of Minnesota wrestling.
Jordan Lohse went all the way to the championship match, capturing the Runners-up prize at 152 pounds.
