Going up against one conference foe, and three regional foes, is always a tough early-season test. In a wonderful Friday night on the mat, the Tanagers passed that test. Vermillion started off the night with a close team loss to Brandon Valley before dominating Yankton and destroying Dakota Valley.

“I’m very happy with how we wrestled, tonight,” said Coach Hazen Bye. “It was a close one against Brandon Valley, which could have gone either way.”

Vermillion and Brandon Valley each won 7 matches, but the Lynx won all of their victories by pinning a Tanager. The score went back-and-forth, until the Lynx pulled ahead at the end.

Five Tanagers went a perfect 3-0 on the night. Trey Hage (106 lbs.) started each dual in splendid fashion with 2 pins and scoring a major decision. Jake Husby (113 lbs.) recorded a technical fall, a pin, and accepted a forfeit. Regan Bye (152 lbs.) pinned all 3 of his opponents. Brett Bye (160 lbs.) won by decision and 2 pins. Alex Osborne (182 lbs.) pinned one opponent & accepted 2 forfeits.

Even though the forfeits helped the team scores, they do not count towards those wrestlers’ individual records.

Mason Pickett (132 lbs.), Carter Kratz (145 lbs.), Brandon Hertz (170 lbs.) and Seth Heine (195 lbs.) each helped the team with 2-1 records on the night.
