"Once again, I was extremely pleased with our performance throughout the tournament," said coach Casey O'Connor. "Even through we finished in eighth place, we only had nine wrestlers entered in the tournament. Five of those nine wrestlers placed in the top five. Two more were in the placing round, but just fell short. Having seven of our nine wrestlers in the position to place is a great accomplishment for our young team."

"Kyle Hubert and Andy Hayner were very dominant throughout the tournament," he continued. "I think this is an indication to where they are physically and mentally at this part of the season.

"If we can continue to perform at this level, they both will have a chance to perform well at the regional tournament in February," O'Connor added. "Casey Carlson and Luke Heine also wrestled extremely well for both being only eighth graders. They wrestled some strong competition and rose to the occasion."
