After the lunch break, the Jags squeaked by the Norseman of Roland Story 42-39 and finished the day by hammering Fort Dodge JV 66-18 finishing as Runner ups in the dual team race.
"Our guys had to really step up as we still didn't have our full lineup in place, obviously missing the big man, Aarron Graves at the top of our lineup and little brother Nate at 195. With our full lineup we felt we felt we could have won the tournament but we were satisfied with the effort of the guys today. Britt has four individuals that are highly ranked in their lineup as well as Roland Story, who has some very good ranked wrestlers in their line up. We had to move guys around to try and cover some of our open weights at the top of our lineup to get the best possible match ups. The guys are coming along as we will continue working on our defense on their feet, and top and bottom positions. Caelan Oakes, Ty Klatt, Zack Miller, and Rylie Ferrari finished 5-0 for the day, Spencer Suchan, Kaden Holder, Caleb Will, Max Miller, Carson Suchan, Harley Bryson, and Mark Hughes completed the day at 3-2. Malaki Klatt went 2-3 and Reed Andrews finished 1-1.
