EMMETSBURG - Sacrificing 36 team points to forfeits for not filling six weight classes, the out-manned Cherokee Braves wrestling team was steamrolled 75-6 by perennial mat power Emmetsburg/Armstrong-Ringsted here Thursday night.
Cherokee's lone winner was undefeated heavyweight Nick Keith, who gives up about 70 pounds when competing in the 285-pound heavyweight class. Keith won his match by fall in 3:57 to earn his team's six points in the fast-moving Lakes Conference encounter.
The Braves host Le Mars and Spirit Lake Park here Thursday in a double dual, and host the annual Paul Fuhrman Invitational Tournament on Saturday.
