Class 2A wrestling quick hits

  • Updated: February 28, 2013 - 1:07 AM

• Since Simley moved down from Class 3A in 2008, the Spartans have won all five Class 2A team championships. The defending champs will be shooting for their 10th overall title.

• Simley has the most individual qualifiers with 11. Kasson-Mantorville and Foley each have nine.

• Perham is makings its 20th overall appearance.

• All three state wrestlers who have committed to the University of Minnesota are in the Class 2A field: Kasson-Mantorville's Nate Thomas and Simley's Jake Short and Nick Wanzek.

• The best match of the Friday's first day of individual competition could come at 132 pounds, where two defending champions -- Brady Berge of Kasson-Mantorville (106) and Kyle Gliva of Simley (113) -- likely will meet in the quarterfinals.

• All eyes will be trained on the 195-pound final Saturday if the expected matchup between Lance Benick of Totino-Grace and Broc Berge of Kasson-Mantorville comes to pass. Both are defending state champs and are ranked among the top 10 nationally by InterMat - Berge is No. 6, Benick is No. 10.
