Tanager wrestlers entertain Beresford, Dakota Valley

Tanager wrestlers entertain Beresford, Dakota Valley by Jim Prosser A large audience in the VHS gym gave support to Tanager wrestlers on Tuesday, Feb. 4 as the wrestling squad faced the Watchdogs from Beresford and the Dakota Valley Panthers in the Tanager final home triangular for both varsity and JV.

The double winners for VHS were Kyle Hubert, 112, J.J. LaMie at 125, Andy Hayner at 130, Taylor Birgen at 189, and Brad Simons at 215.

"Tuesday night was an outstanding performance by the Vermillion wrestling team," said coach Casey O'Connor. "We discussed, as a team, the possibility of winning these two duals and the kids produced. Casey Carlson moved up to wrestle varsity for us against Beresford and registered a fall. J.J. LaMie, Andy Hayner, and Taylor Birgen each had two pins on the night.

"I feel our wrestlers are peaking at the right time," he continued. "These wins give great motivation for the team. It was a lot of fun having it happen in front of a great home crowd."
