With West Central being the fourth ranked team in Class A wrestling, Pelican Rapids  coaches choose to forfeit many weights at the Section 6A Meet.

“It would have done nothing for their confidence going into Section individual tournaments having lost their last match” stated Coach Coach Holt.

Pelican matmen fell decisively to WCA on Feb. 17, with the only win generated by Viking standout Carson Haugrud, who pinned his opponent in 1:33. Haugrud moved up to 195 last week.   However, at sections he will be wrestling at 182.

There was some juggling of the line up with the coaches deciding to not have Casey Kurlsrud wrestle, a loss would have hurt him in the seeding at 145.
