The St. Michael-Albertville High School wrestling team ended their regular season with 2 dual meet wins on Friday February 8th, as they defeated Irondale 68-3 and blanked Maple Grove by a score of 77-0 at STMA High School. The wins improved the Knights’ season dual meet record to 27-1, heading into post season play. The Knights next compete in the Section 7AAA dual meet tournament on Friday February 15th at Forest Lake and will be looking to defend their Section title and earn a trip to the State Tourney. The Knights will compete at 4:00 PM, 6:00 PM, with finals scheduled for 8:00 PM, assuming they keep winning. STMA is the number one seed in the tourney and Cambridge-Isanti is the number two seed entering the tourney.

STMA head coach Dan Lefebvre had this to say about his wrestlers, “We ended the regular season on a solid performance. The guys continue to wrestle with a lot of heart. These guys love to wrestle and love to compete. Wrestling is a big part of their lives, and as a result, they know when it is time to have fun and when it is time to turn it up and compete. They are a fun group to coach.”
