On Jan. 3, the Quarriers competed in the Elk Point-Jefferson Quad in Elk Point.
“We had a pretty good night on the mat,” coach Craig Jorgensen said. “Our lower weights wrestled well against EPJ and set the tone for the upper weights. Tyler Gee won an exciting match over EPJs Nick Weis, No. 2 rated in the Bs.
“Against Harrisburg, we had the lead in a few matches but ended up making some mistakes that cost us the wins. We made an attempt to recover but couldn't get it done.
“Against Dakota Valley, we won some big matches in the lower weights that really helped out the cause. Leon Maxwell had the match of the night by beating Taylor Lambert, No. 3 rated in the As at 220 by decision, 9-8.”
Saturday, the Quarriers will travel to Tri-Valley for a dual to begin at 10 a.m.
