Wins by 7-6 decision in Iowa-Minnesota All-Star Border Battle ...

Waukon wrestling 145-pound senior Miles Hansmeier works to control fellow senior Brody Olson of Stewartville High School out of Minnesota in their middleweight bout at the 18th annual Iowa-Minnesota All-Star Border Battle dual meet held Friday, March 8 at Crestwood High School in Cresco. Hansmeier pulled out a 7-6 victory in the match, but the squad of top senior wrestlers from southeast Minnesota edged their mat counterparts from northeast Iowa in the All-Star event by a 42-39 final team result. Olson also wrestled another match in the dual, pinning North Fayette Valley senior Gunner Rodgers in 3:58 to help his Minnesota squad to the team victory. The event is sponsored by the Iowa Wrestling Hall of Fame housed in Cresco. The dual meet win by the Minnesota squad evens up the interstate mat series at nine wins for each team.
