MENAHGA -- Even in a shortened season, the Bemidji High School wrestling team has matched its program record for single-season victories.
The Lumberjacks sailed to a pair of wins Tuesday night in Menahga and improved to 27-2 on the season. The 27 victories match a program record established last season when BHS finished 27-8 en route to a second straight Section 8-3A title. Prior to 2019-20, the previous high for single-season wins was 26 in 2014-15.
The Jacks’ victories of 58-12 over United North Central and 59-12 against Fosston/Bagley extended the team’s win streak to 13 matches.
Bemidji is ranked No. 4 in Class 3A, as of the latest Guillotine state poll. Four Lumberjacks are ranked in their respective weight class: Seth Newby (No. 5, 152 pounds), Darren Roth (No. 5, 160), Colton Hinrichs (No. 7, 195) and Nate Schwinghammer (No. 10, 220).
Roth was one of five BHS wrestlers to go 2-0 Tuesday, along with Seth Sisneros, Coy Olsen, Dane Jorgensen and Barrick Nelson. Sisneros won both of his matches via fall on Tuesday.
The Jacks will bring the regular season to a close with a triangular alongside Sauk Rapids-Rice and Sartell-St. Stephen in Sauk Rapids at 5 p.m. on Friday, March 5.
