Bahr and Hibbing's Will Johnson shared the league's MVP award.

Bemidji, Hibbing and Grand Rapids were named co-champions of the loosely knit conference which also includes Nashwauk-Keewatin, Deer River and Virginia.

The conference, which is not recognized by the MSHSL, exists primarily to select an all-conference team.

Bemidji wrestles only Hibbing and Grand rapids each year. Not all other teams face a full league schedule as well..

Of Bemidji's seven selections, Bahr, Masterson, Sorby and Richter will graduate. Norton and Huber are sophomores and Doty an eighth grader.

They are expected to spearhead the 2009 Bemidji mat team.
