SPENCER - The Cherokee Braves came up on the short end of a rugged Lakes Conference wrestling double dual at Spencer last week, falling 59-18 to the rated Tigers, and losing a tight nail-biter 40-39 to Estherville-LC.

Earning pins for the Braves in the double dual were Drake Bechtel at 106 pounds, Blake Booth at 152, Luke Ziemen at 160, and Micheal Rosewall at 285.

"I was very proud of the team Thursday night as they took on top rated Spencer and Estherville-Lincoln Central," said Cherokee coach Austin Todd. "Wrestling Spencer, I believe the score does not truly reflect on how well we wrestled. We took many top rated wrestlers into the third period and wrestled well, but we were unable to finish matches as we had hoped.

"When we wrestled Estherville-LC the score went back and forth. With both teams having open weights it was hard to get a feeling on how the dual was going to end. Andy Pitts wrestled well in his match where he pulled out a win in overtime."
