Prep wrestling: Falcons finish with a flourish


ST. PAUL — Feelings were mixed for the Falcons after winning the Class A Consolation title at the state tournament.

“I think we could have done better,” said junior Maverick Whitcomb who started a late run of four straight victories that allowed Atwater-Cosmos-Grove City to overtake Kerkhoven-Murdock-Sunburg 28-21. “We knew we didn’t wrestle our best match against Sibley East.  We probably could have been in the champion semifinals. But there’s always next year.”
