At 189 Michael Bergfield Pinned Himos from Niobrara County, Kerns from Lingle, Ewald from Crawford and Lost to Hicks from Bennett County by a 4-8 decision. Michael placed second at this weight.
As a team the Squad placed fifth. This is pretty good for only filling five weights. The next outing for the grapplers will occur next Saturday at the Banner County Invite in Harrisburg, NE. First round action will start at 9:30 AM. Hope to see you there.
