WRESTLING: Bemidji dominant in triangular sweep
DEER RIVER — The Bemidji High School wrestling team earned a pair of victories Tuesday in a triangular in Deer River.
Jon Solum, Chance Hinrichs, and Brian Maas got things going in the right direction for the Lumberjacks, as they won at 106, 113 and 120.
Maas, Hunter Schoenborn, Brody Wilander, Kade Johnson, and Wyatt Yoemans all were able to pin their opponent in the victory over Aitkin.
BHS’s win over Deer River was aided by six wins by forfeit, but Solum, Lucas Gast and Gunnar Nelson were all able to pin their opponents.
After dropping his first contest against Aitkin, Indi Farris bounced back with a 19-0 defeat over Kasey Braford of Deer River.
Solum and Hinrichs were the only two wrestlers to win two events on the night for Bemidji.
