Total Team Effort Between Varsity and JV Wrestlers

FRIDLEY, MN - DECEMBER 2, 2017 - The Tiger wrestlers opened their 2017-18 season in impressive fashion. They brought home the team title at the Don Meyers Fridley Invitational for the third consecutive year finishing the tournament with 200.5 team points. Mound-Westonka placed second, but way back from the Tigers, with 141 team points. 

Delano had three individual champions to lead the way. Tanner Kroells won the 138 lb. bracket, going 2-0 on the day with a decision of 7-2 in the finals. Eli McCune won the 170 lb. bracket, going 2-0 on the day, and a fall at 1:39 in the finals. And Steven Hajas won the 220 lb. bracket, going 3-0 on the day, finishing with a 1:12 pin in the finals. While three champions earned a substantial amount of team points, the strength of the Tigers on this day was their depth throughout the lineup. Delano received lots of team points all throughout their lineup. Tyson Kroells placed 2nd in the 106 lb. bracket and Camden Tschudi also placed 2nd in the 160 bracket. The Tigers had five 3rd-place finishers. Clete Scherer at 113, Leo Vanderlinde at 120, Ethan Quast at 152, Jacob McDonald at 182, and Edward Hajas at 195 - all placed 3rd in their brackets. Hayden Lynch placed 6th at 145 and Carson vanSytzama placed 5th in the HWT bracket. 

Tanner Kroells was awarded as the Most Outstanding Wrestler - an award given as a result of votes from the coaches of all participating teams. Also, Steven Hajas was awarded with the Fastest Pin Award. 

The Tigers travel to Litchfield High School for a triangular against Litchfield and Dassel Cokato High School on Thursday, December 7. They come back to host their annual Delano Invitational on December 9 in the Tiger Activity Center at Delano High School.
