Cherokee Coach Austin Todd said, "I am very proud of the way the team came ready to wrestle. Blake Booth stepped up in his first varsity match of the season and got a huge pin for us in our battle with Emmetsburg. Alexx Maurer was also able to pick up his first win in our dual against Alta-Aurelia. Jack Letshe and Hunter Morrow had exciting matches as well with Jack winning in an overtime match and Hunter getting a pin in the final seconds of his match against Alta-Aurelia. The kids are improving each and every time they step onto the mat, but we are not quite where we want to be yet. "
The Braves' next competition will be Saturday December 10th at Sibley-Ocheyedan at 9:30.
