Wrestling: Rosemount sweeps through Blaine Duals
Four wrestlers went undefeated as the Rosemount wrestling team improved to 18-4 with a sweep of the Blaine Duals Saturday.
Steve Levine, Adam Jackson, Pat Massey and Sam Moeller all went 3-0, with their biggest wins helping the Irish edge seventh-ranked (Class 2A) Milaca, 27-26. Logan Mickie, Kouta Sugri and Payton Otterdahl also recorded wins in the dual, setting up Stefan Sauer to win the match with a 3-0 decision at heavyweight.
Milaca won five of the first six matches and led 22-3 before Rosemount closed with seven wins in eight matches.
The Irish also beat Osseo, 60-19, and Elk River, 33-29.
Jackson, the state's second-ranked 152-pounder, improved his record to 33-2. Levine, ranked seventh at 126 pounds, upped his record to 32-3, and ninth-rated Rosa improved to 27-7. Moeller (24-9), Sauer (25-20) and Adam Hedin (26-9) have also reached the 20-win plateau. Grant Jackson, Kwame Owusu and Pat Massey each have 18 victories.
The Irish are back in action tonight for their final meet of the regular season, a South Suburban Conference dual against Lakeville North. The two teams are battling for third in the league behind No. 1 Apple Valley and Prior Lake, which edged Rosemount 32-24 last Thursday.
