The ELC Wrestling Team has literally been on the road this season. They have traveled to Humboldt, Manly, Hull, Emmetsburg, Orange City, Spencer, Cherokee and Graettinger. On Tuesday, Jan. 10, the boys will be hosting their only home double dual meet against Algona and Okoboji. ELC will face off against Algona at 6. Algona and Okoboji will wrestle next. The night will end with the Midgets wrestling the Pioneers. This will also be "senior night" for Lee Bates, Ryan Behne, Gable Bonner, Aaron Howing, Evan Howing, Dakota Knaack, Cole Mace and Andy Segura. On Saturday, Jan. 14, ELC will be hosting their duals tournament. Wrestling begins at 9 a.m. I encourage the community to get out and support our wrestling team. I am looking forward to seeing the Midget Maniacs show their spirit.
Wrestling is a very unique sport. It is both a team and an individual sport. Wrestling is also a complicated sport to understand. There are so many different ways wrestlers are awarded points. But it is also a very exciting sport! A wrestler can be behind by 14 points with less than five seconds to go in a match and still win. Even if you do not understand wrestling, come out to the gymnasium and show your support!
The boys will be traveling to Emmetsburg again on Jan. 19 for a double dual against Emmetsburg and LeMars. ELC will be wrestling the second and third duals. This will be covered on KUOO Hot Y100. So if you are unable to make the short trip to Emmetsburg, you can hear the live coverage on KUOO Hot Y 100! God Midgets!
