Keith gets lone Cherokee victory

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.

In JV action, heavyweight Miah Back won by fall in 1:57 for the Young Braves only victory. IN other JV matches, Trevor Ankrum and Tyler McLaughlin each lost by fall, while Gabe Conley and Trevor Devitt lost by decision.

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.
