Teams of the Week: M-S wrestling in spotlight

In the year coach Rob Ledin won his 100th career match at M-S and the school competed in its 1,000th dual meet in history, the Bulldogs (21-8) returned to the 20-win mark for the first time in 11 years and concluded a 6-0 run past Corn Belt Conference teams to win the undisputed league championship.

The Maroons (22-3), on the verge of cracking the state’s Top 10 in Class 2A, have won seven games in a row. En route to the title game of the Okaw Valley Conference Tournament (tonight at Unity) against No. 4 Central A&M, five different squad members have scored in double figures during the 12-school event.

The Raiders (14-6) have won eight of their last nine games and moved into a Friday semifinal game (at Arcola) against Tri-County in the Little Okaw Valley Conference Tournament. Sophomores Andrew Donithan and Eli Furgeson have been two of the offensive catalysts for coach Charlie Carver’s streaking team.

The Sages (16-2), who won the school’s 1,500th game earlier this season, have matched their victory total from last season and earned the No. 1 seed for the Okaw Valley Conference Tournament, which starts Friday. Junior Nick Stokowski and senior Bryan Phipps have led the team to three straight wins.

The Cardinals (5-18) opened the week with back-to-back double-digit wins at home, topping an Oakwood team they had lost to previously and then holding Bismarck-Henning to 15 points. Junior Sarah Ellis scored in double figures in both games while teammates Chey Warner, a junior, and Shelby Warner, a freshman, did so once.
