Even in a shortened season, the Bemidji High School wrestling team has matched its program record for single-season victories.
The Lumberjacks sailed to a pair of wins Tuesday night in Menahga and improved to 27-2 on the season. The 27 victories match a program record established last season.
The Jacks’ victories of 58-12 over United North Central and 59-12 against Fosston/Bagley extended the team’s win streak to 13 matches.
Bemidji is ranked No. 4 in Class 3A, as of the latest Guillotine state poll. Four Lumberjacks are ranked in their respective weight class: Seth Newby (No. 5, 152 pounds), Darren Roth (No. 5, 160), Colton Hinrichs (No. 7, 195) and Nate Schwinghammer (No. 10, 220).
The Jacks will bring the regular season to a close with a triangular alongside Sauk Rapids-Rice and Sartell-St. Stephen in Sauk Rapids at 5 p.m. on Friday, March 5.
