Lake Mills controls home meet
The Bulldog wrestlers hosted a triangular Thursday night and picked up a couple of wins. The first dual of the night was a quick one, as Lake Mills beat Rockford, 84-0.
“They are pretty thin on numbers this year,” said Coach Alex Brandenburg. “It was the fastest dual I have ever seen with under one minute of wrestling total.”
In the other dual of the night, Lake Mills took on Algona and led throughout. The team won 10 of 14 bouts and cruised to a 46-18 victory.
“Our kids wrestled very well against Algona,” Brandenburg said. “I can see our wrestlers are improving heading into the final weeks of the season.”
The fourth ranked Bulldogs have now won 21 straight duals since their loss to #3 Lisbon at the Battle of Waterloo. Lake Mills is 33-2 on the year.
