Flathead wrestlers 2nd at AA Duals in Great Falls

Print Article

GREAT FALLS — The Flathead Braves placed second at the Class AA Duals on Saturday in Great Falls.

In the final, Great Falls beat Flathead 51-12.

“We were In the fight with the Bison but just couldn’t finish some matches, Flathead coach Jeff Thompson said, “The dual was a lot closer than the score. We just have to get better.”

Earlier in the day, Flathead beat Billings Skyview and upset Billings Senior in the semifinal.

Tanner Russell moved up a weight class to 182 pounds and beat two ranked opponents.

“Overall, a great showing for the Brave Brawlers,” Thompson said. “Being the 2nd best dual team in the AA isn’t too bad for this young team.”

Glacier had four wrestlers undefeated on Saturday: Caden Gilmond (160), Kael Willis (170), Teegan Vasquez (113) and Lance Fretwell (132).

Against Skyview, Glacier lost a tight contest that came down to criteria.

“We feel good about where we are at a couple weeks out from seeding and state, we have some fine tuning to do, but today we were able to flip a number of matches that we had lost early in the season and won today,” Glacier coach Ross Dankers said. “I was proud of the way our guys battled back after the tight dual with Skyview that came down to criteria.”

Class AA divisional seeding for the state meet is scheduled for Feb. 8
