Wolves to compete at state

Mille Lacs County Times

Milaca senior heavyweight wrestler Jordan Ahner shows his elation as the referee raises his hand after Ahner defeated Seamus Hunter of North Branch Saturday at the Section 7AA Individual Tournament at Mora. The 3-2 victory in the “true second” match gave Ahner second place at heavyweight and earned him a berth to the state individual tournament.

Ahner is one of seven Wolves wrestlers who will be competing in both the state individual tournament and the state team tournament at the Xcel Energy Center in St. Paul. Milaca faces top-ranked Simley today (Thursday) in the team meet, with the individual tournament set for Friday and Saturday.
