Jacks rack up pair of dual victories at Hibbing wrestling tournament

Bemidji returned from this weekend's Hibbing Invitational with three victories in four matches. Friday the Jacks lost to Chisago Lakes but dominated Virginia. Saturday they thumped Nashwauk-Keewatin-Greenway 47-24 and blistered Deer River 42-30.

Jake Crosby was a double winner Saturday as he recorded a decision and a pin at 125. Colton Doty pinned his N-K-G foe in the 145-pound division and did the same to his Deer River opponent, this time at 140.

Kade Johnson duplicated that feat, wrestling 152 in Saturday's opener and at 145 against Deer River.

Kodi Craft also won twice as he earned an 11-6 win at 160 against N-K-G and a 9-4 win at 152 against Deer River.

The Jacks improved to 6-5 in dual action. They will be home Saturday for the annual Rick Lee Invitational.
