Twin Lakes Conference Recaps Wrestling Season

February 27, 2018
by Dan Voigt , Emmetsburg News

The first season of competition in the Twin Lakes Conference for Emmetsburg's E-Hawk wrestling team was highly rewarding. Coach Tyler Bjustrom's E-Hawks won the conference dual meet title with a perfect 9-0 mark and finished the season with a dual mark of 18-2.

The E-Hawks would also finish second in the conference tournament behind Graettinger-Terril/Ruthven-Ayrshire, who took second place in the dual standings with an 8-1 mark and 19-3 overall record. However, GT/RA's Coach Alex Helmich earned the Coach of the Year Honors from his peers in the league.

The West Bend-Mallard/Gilmore City-Bradgate Wolverines would finish the dual meet season with a mark of 1-8 in the league and a mark of 4-20 on the season, and finished ninth at the conference tournament.
