By Mike Schindler, coach Win over EV-W The Cubs and the Eagles have faced off 53 times since Kimball Wrestling has been established. With Kimball coming out on top with a 49-19 win on Tuesday, Jan. 25, the series is once again tied up at 26 wins 26 losses and one tie. This was a huge win for the Cubs to head into the Eden Val- ley gym, and capture the win; the last time the wrestlers were able to get a win in Eden Valley was in 1997. This was a critical match for the Cubs in their quest for the conference title. They needed to wrestle well as a team to be able to knock off the defending confer- ence champs loaded with seniors. This win gives Kimball a 5-0 con- ference record with two more con- ference matches left to go. The Cubs started out fast on the Eagles, building a 24-0 lead by get- ting wins out of Mitchell McKee (103) receiving a forfeit, Quinten ,BerreS (112) winning by a fall over Zach Blonigen in 1:22, Tan- ner Mills (119) receiving a forfeit, and Marcus Hamer (125) won by a fall over Sam Femrite in 52 sec- onds. Troy Filzen (135) started a run for the Cubs by winning a 6-3 decision over Luke Kuechle. Tyler Kuechle (140) won a close deci- sion 2-1 over Austin Peterson. Jor- dan Joseph (145) received a for- feit. Caramon Hansen (152) had one of the most physical matches of the night, coming out on top with a 12-4 major decision over Mike Downham. Travis Schiefel- bein (160) received a forfeit to put the Cubs up 46-6 going into 171. David Joseph received the last win for the Cubs on the night, getting a 3-0 decision over Brandon Walz. Wrestler's go 1-1 in ACGC Win over Osakis: Thursday, Jan. 27, the Cubs had a tri with two section foes in ACGC. The first match of the night for the Cubs was against Osakis. Mitchell McKee (103) started things off for the Cubs getting a 10-3 decision, Quinten Berres (112) won by a fall in 1:18, Tanner Mills (119) received a forfeit, Marcus Hamer (125) won by a 13-8 decision, Jake Linn (130) won by a 12-2 major decision, Tyler Kuechle (140) won by a 5-2 deci- sion, Jordan Joseph won by a fall in 3:31, Travis Schiefelbein (171) won by a 14-3 major decision, David Joseph won by a fall in 3:24, and Alex Thurber (215) won'by a fall in 39 seconds to give the Cubs the section win 47-18. Loss to ACGC: In a dual that was going to decide the number one and two seed in the section tournament, the Cubs faced an up-hill battle going against the #2-ranked team in class A, with three kids out of their line-up. The team stepped up and gave ACGC everything they had, but came out of the dual with their first loss of the year. Quinten Berres (112) got things going for the Cubs with a 3-2 deci- sion win over sixth-ranked Logan Peterson, Tanner Mills (119) kept it going with a fall in 1:07, Marcus Hamer (130) won by a 11-0 major decision, Caramon Hansen (145) won a tough battle 6-4 over third- ranked Matt Lee, Jordan Joseph (152) won another close match 4-3 over sixth-ranked Matt Meyer, and David Joseph (189) won by a 11-4 decision. The team wrestled very well, having to make up 18 points that Kimball gave up because of forfeits. The final score to the match was Kimball 22 ACGC 37. Cubs capture another title Saturday, the Cubs traveled to Fergus Palls for a dual meet tour- nament. The Cubs went into the tournament with three kids out of their regular line-up, but wres- tled as a team to capture the tour. nament title. Skyler Schiefelbein, Matt Donnay, and Luke Serbus were scheduled to wrestle in the individual JV tournament that was going on at the same time, but when they found out we had kids not coming because of an illness, they all stepped up and filled in. These three did not have the best day for the Cubs, but by them step- ping up and excepting the chal- lenge, it helped the rest of the team take care of business. The Cubs did have eight wres- tlers that went undefeated on the day.
