Erlandson, noll, and ruddy pick up varsity victories
• By Coach Tom Haire
The Breckenridge Cowboy wrestlers traveled to West Central Area on Friday, January 15th, for a triangular with section foe West Central Area, along with Heart O' Lakes Conference rival Dilworth-Glyndon-Felton. The Cowboys came up short in both duals, but Matt Noll (106 lbs.) and Daniel Erlandson (220 lbs.), went 2-0 on the night. Also picking up a win on the night was Aidan Ruddy (152 lbs.). In junior varsity action, Henry Slettedahl, David Erlandson, and Riley Kappes all picked up wins.
“We’re a little banged up right now, but the guys who went out on the mat tonight wrestled well. Matt wrestled extremely well from start to finish in his matches, grinding out two hard fought decisions. Daniel dominated his opponents, coming up with two pins. Aidan, Wyatt Differding (285 lbs.), and Alex Martel (126 lbs.) also did some really good things tonight," said Haire.
The Cowboy grapplers were back in action Tuesday, where they earned their first win of the season, a 39-30 outcome over Wadena-Deer Creek. The Cowboys host a varsity triangular today at 5:00 p.m.
