Prep wrestling: Monroe 40, Jackson 39
The Bearcats got them.
Nick DiMonda and Jake DiMaggio both pinned their opponents at 152 and 160, respectively, and the Bearcats beat Jackson in a nonleague meet.
The Timberwolves got their licks in too. Cade Christiansen took down Wyatt Smith halfway through a one-minute overtime period after ending regulation tied 6-6.
Jackson may have been a bit out of sorts due to some lineup juggling, including a few wrestlers wrestling up a weight class, according to Timberwolves head coach Sherm Iversen.
The trade-off was a full lineup and four forfeits at 106, 113, 220 and 285. Overall, the final score reflects a close-fought battle that really could have gone either way.
"We were pleased," said Iversen. "Monroe was a classy outfit. It was a fun match. ... We thought we had them for a second but they came back and got us.
