Frazee Wresling - No. 6 Hornets take home invite

The Class 1A No. 6 ranked Frazee wrestling team certainly proved its worth after winning its home Les Kertscher Tournament Saturday.

It was virtually a who's who of state-ranked teams involved in the Frazee dual invite, as the Hornets survived all with a championship victory over the Class 2A No. 3 ranked Foley squad, 44-24.

The Hornets featured a deep and skilled lineup, as they mowed down Class 1A No. 12 Kimball 47-20 in the opening round and defeated Class 1A No. 5 Lake Crystal-Wellcome Memorial 40-20 in the semifinals.

Frazee entered with three ranked wrestlers in No. 2 Tony Reurink (220), No. 6 Bruce Lemon (145) and No. 9 Byron Byer (113).

Lemon and Reurink each went 3-0 in their matches, along with teammates Tanner Reetz (106), Tyler Ziegler (170), Garrett Malstrom (heavyweight) and Austin Skillings (132).

Byer's only loss came against Kimball's No. 2 ranked Blane Tschida in the opening round on a 13-2 decision.

Reurink defeated No. 5 ranked Cameron Svihla in the heavyweight bout against Foley.

Other ranked teams in the tournament included Perham (No. 12 Class 2A), Minneota (No. 8 Class 1A) and Lisbon, N.D. (defending Class B State champions).
