Having been away from competition for a while, the Kimball Cubs’ wrestling squad made a visit to Osakis Friday, Jan. 10, to wrestle in the Dual Tournament. Coach Mike Schindler was pleased with the team’s efforts. “We ended up placing third out of six teams and wrestled very well, giving up two forfeits at our lower weights.” Kimball’s Blane Tschida, Quinten Berres, Brady Mehr, Markus Mehr, and Austin Schiefelbein, all went undefeated on the night. Markus Mehr also defeated the sixth-ranked man in AA, Tristan Rubner, from Pequot Lakes/Pine River Backus.
