Thursday, December 9, 2010 .lldlt Tri-County News Kimball, MN Vv6 t,t Wrestlers place 14, claim 8 titles By Mike Schindler, Coach The Cubs started off their sea- son Saturday, Dec. 4, traveling through the snow to Rush City for an individual tournament. The Cubs returned all but one from last year's section team, and have some new young faces in the room this year. We have also added Coach Aho to our program. Aho wrestled in college for NDSU and in high school for Frazee. Saturday the guys showed up to wrestle as they placed all 14 wrestlers in the tournament, and had eight individual champions to take first place in the Rush City Invite, placing ahead of Mille Lacs by more than 40 points. Leading the way for the Cubs and taking home individual titles were: Mitchell McKee at 103 pounds who recorded two pins on his way to first place. Quinten Berres at 112 pounds also pinned his way through the tournament winning first place. Tanner Mills at 119 pounds had a tough match in the first round, winning 9-1 over Nik Borchert from Mille Lacs. Tanner would then go on to pin his way to a title. Marcus Hamer at 125 pounds pinned his way to the finals, then had a great match in the finals, winning 11-3 over Cody Whitney of Mille Lacs. Jordan Joseph at 145 pounds pinned his way to the finals, where he met up with another Mille Lacs wrestler in Chase Niesen. Jordan won in the finals with a 9-4 decision. Travis Schiefelbein at 171 pounds had a short day of wres- tling by pinning his way through the tournament, and only wres- tling for a total of five minutes on the day. David Joseph at 189 pounds dominated his opponents in the first period, then opened up his offense in the second and third periods, winning with a pin and two major decisions. Alex Thurber at 215 pounds pinned his way through the tour- nament, man-handling his com- petition and racking up two quick pins. Placing and helping the Cubs win the team title at the tourna- ment include: Jacob Linn at 130 pounds improved through out the tourna- ment placing in 5th place. Troy Filzen at 135 pounds made it to the finals in his first varsity tournament, where he had to face Hayden Zillmer from Crosby Iron- ton, a state champion last year. Mitch Pramann at 140 pounds also made it to the finals, losing a close match to Mark Francour of Mille Lacs. Caramon Hansen at 152 pounds lost a very close first match that went into overtime in the first round. Caramon gathered himself and came back to take home third place. Quentin Bryce at 160 pounds lost his first match of the day, but came back through the tourna- ment, improving on every match to place fourth. Austin Schiefelbein at 285 was one of the lightest heavyweights Leisure at the tournament weighing in at the minimum weight to be able to wrestle the big guys. Austin showed that he is able to handle the bigger guys and placed third in the tournament. Because this is the first tourna- ment of the year, the tournament directors do a draw instead of a seeding format. By doing this we saw some of the best matches in the first round instead of the finals as you would in other tournaments. It was a well-run tournament and the Kimball fans traveled a ways in the snow to support us.
