Prep Wrestling: No. 8 Willmar collects 2 more wins
COLD SPRING — The Willmar wrestling team picked up two section wins and a Central Lakes Conference victory on Friday, moving a step closer to an undefeated conference season.
The Cardinals, ranked No. 8 in the latest Class AAA state poll, dumped Wayzata 49-17 and also took out Central Lakes Conference rival Rocori 40-23.
Willmar co-head coach Ed Oehlers said Estavan Navarro and Leon Richards wrestled well in picking up two wins apiece.
Navarro won a major decision against Wayzata’s Aaron Cote and also won by major decision over Rocori’s Cody Buerman.
“He wrestled really well against some tough guys and beat them handily,” Oehlers said of Navarro. “He’s been wrestling excellently for us for awhile now.”
Richards won by fall in 27 seconds against Wayzata and defeated Rocori’s Tyler Hoffman 8-7.
The Cardinals (13-2 overall) improved to 6-0 in the Central Lakes Conference with two conference matches remaining.
They travel to Sauk Rapids on Thursday, then finish the season against Fergus Falls on Feb. 6 in Willmar.
