Wayzata, Osseo, Hopkins Wrestlers Advance to State
In the new “Super Sectional/State Prelim” tournament featuring wrestlers from Section 5AAA and 6AAA, Wayzata, Osseo and Hopkins had wrestlers advance to this week’s state tournament.
The tournament format changed this season due to COVID-19.
Seven wrestlers from Wayzata qualified. Logan Swensen (106 pounds), Cael Swensen (152), Adam Cherne (160) and Adam El-Damir (170) placed first, while Cal Lonnquist (132), Kyler Wong (138) and Dominic Heim (182) qualified by placing second.
Three Osseo wrestlers took first place to advance: Aidan Wayne (195), Jacob Meissner (220) and Jagger Schack (285).
Hopkins had one qualifier: RJ Chakolis (220). Chakolis was a state champion at 195 pounds last season but lost to Meissner in the championship and had to win a true second match over third-ranked Sam McEnelly to stay alive.
The state tournament for class AAA is Thursday at St. Michael-Albertville, with team competition in the morning and individual competition starting at 2:00 p.m.
