Two trips to Harrisburg are all that remain in the regular season for the Vermillion wrestlers.

The first will be Saturday for the Big 8 Conference tournament.  The second will be next Friday, Feb. 10, for a triangular with Harrisburg and Sioux Falls Washington.

Last Saturday the Tanagers placed 11th among 12 teams at the Wagner tournament, accumulating 58 team points.  Tri-Valley, Wagner and Parkston were the top three teams.

Brett Bye won the championship at 132 pounds, claiming his title with a 10-3 decision in the championship match over Tri-Valley's Austin Oyen.  That was a monumental clash between the top-rated wrestler in Class "A" and the top-rated wrestler in Class "B" at 132 pounds, and Bye won for the 27th time without a loss so far this season.

Will Mart finished second at 285 pounds, losing in the finals to Faulkton's Rob Aesoph, 3-0.
