DL matmen dominate Park Rapids
Experience showed through for the Detroit Lakes wrestling team, as the Lakers toppled home-team Park Rapids 55-15 Tuesday.
The much more seasoned Lakers dominated the Panthers’ lineup, starting with Tyler Bellefeuille’s pin of Toby Ritter at 106 pounds through to heavyweight James Huwe’s fall over Chris Baxter.
“It was great to get back on the mat after the Christmas break,” said DL head coach Rob Ullyott.
“We were a little rusty and need to continue to work on some of the small details that can make a big difference. We always have a great effort, we just need to continue to get better.”
Those Lakers recording pins included Luke Payne (138) and Jarett Nosal (170), while Nathan Francis (145), Parker Jackson (152), Luke Eggebraaten (160) and Tanner Schnathorst (195) all rang up decisions.
The Lakers will be back in action at Moorhead for a triangular with the Spuds and Dilworth-Glyndon-Felton, starting at 5 p.m.
