Spirit Lake Park beat the Braves 57-22, and Le Mars prevailed 48-28.
Cherokee's Patrick Loughlin pinned both of his foes at 160 pounds to lead the Braves, while Calvin Conley won both his matches at 152, one by fall and other by technical fall.
In JV action, winners for the Young Braves included Gabe Conley by fall in 3:32 over Hunter Peterson of SLP at 145 pounds, Nate Seliger by fall in 2:28 over James Mathey of SLP at 160, Gordy Gill by fall in 3:01 over Justin Guy of Le Mars at 160, and Alanzo Ruble by fall in 2:39 over Nathan Kyle of SLP at 189.
"We wrestled with two evenly matched Lakes Conference teams. Against Le Mars, without our open weights (103, 112) and giving up a few close matches with pins, this one was much closer than the final score. The Spirit Lake Park dual was really close in the middle. We started slow and gave up too many pins again."
