Among the Bluejays who wrestled at the event were Ian Johnson, who placed sixth at 157 pounds; Deante Porter, who placed eighth at 197 pounds; and Dayveon Hill, who was the Consolation B Champion.


Bluejays coach Brayden Curry said that overall, it was a competitive day of wrestling on Saturday, and that his team has shown a lot of improvement over the last month. Up next is a dual at North Iowa Area Community College on Wednesday and a triangular dual between Southwest Minnesota State University and Ridgewater College on Friday.


Minnesota West will host its lone home dual of the year at 7 p.m. Dec. 15 against Iowa Lakes Community College. It will also be Youth Wrestling Appreciation Night, so all youth wrestlers wearing their club's T-shirt will be granted free admission to the dual.
