SIBLEY - The young, inexperienced Aurelia/Galva-Holstein/Schaller-Crestland wrestling team ran into some tough competition on Saturday at the Sibley-Ocheyedan Wrestling Tournament.
Sheldon/South O'Brien won the tournament, scoring 172 team points, with Graettinger-Terril close behind with 170 points. AGHSC scored 66.5 pts to place ninth.
The AGHSC coaches "thought the kids wrestled hard for the most part, but got out of position at times and you can't do that againist quality wrestlers."
