Apple Valley, SMA win over top 2A teams

In the end, it turned out that the rankings, both statewide and nationally, proved to be spot-on Friday.

Apple Valley and St. Michael-Albertville, Nos. 1 and 2 in Class 3A and Nos. 4 and 5, respectively, in the nation, according to, flexed their respective muscles by beating the top two teams in Class 2A in separate dual meets.

Host Apple Valley broke open a tight match against Kasson-Mantorville, winning six weights in a row, starting with a victory by Dayton Racer at 152 pounds, to beat the KoMets 39-20. Kasson-Mantorville went into the match ranked No. 2 in Class 2A and No. 17 in the InterMat national rankings.

St. Michael-Albertville supporters hope that this might be the year the Knights can give eight-time champion Apple Valley a run for the Class 3A title. And their team showed why they might be right with a convincing 41-21 victory over five-time Class 2A champion Simley, which sported a No. 9-national ranking by InterMat.
