High School: Willmar Cardinals earn two wins at Tech
Willmar improves to 5-0 in the Central Lakes Conference with victories over Rocori and St. Cloud Tech/Apollo
ST. CLOUD — The Willmar wrestling team came away with a pair of Central Lakes Conference wins Monday night in a triangular at St. Cloud Tech.
The Cardinals beat Rocori 34-24 and defeated St. Cloud Tech/Apollo/Cathedral 40-24 to improve to 5-0 in the CLC and 9-1 overall.
“Just good competition and some nice, tough battles tonight,” said Willmar head coach Ed Oehlers. “Rocori had a good, young crew and kept that to more of a narrow victory than we expected. … Coming back to a Monday event was a little different for the guys.”
Against St. Cloud, Willmar earned victories from Ivan Ciriaco-Mares at 113 pounds; Conlan Carlson at 120; Steven Cruze at 138; Caden Carlson at 145; Braeden Erickson at 152; Jonas Anez at 160; Joe Kalleig at 170; and Kaden Streed at 195.
Caden Carlson had a pin in 1 minute, 40 seconds. Erickson also had a fall in 1:10. Kallevig won by pin at 4:59.
Willmar is next scheduled to compete at 5 p.m. Thursday at the Fergus Falls triangular. Sauk Rapids also is expected to be in Fergus Falls.
