MOORHEAD, Minn. - The Iowa Lakes Wrestling Team competed in the Cobber Open on Concordia College Campus this past Saturday.
The Lakers were able to place four individuals in the tournament with Ethan Lindquist leading the way with a second-place finish at 184 pounds.
Riley Edwards followed up with a fourth place finish at a 184 pounds. Nick Lawrence took fifth at 174 pounds and Jeff Erickson took sixth at 285 pounds.
"I was pleased with the team's overall performance," said Iowa Lakes coach Cody Alesch. "I thought the guys fought hard and wrestled with intensity. We got out wrestled at times but I think we took a lot away from the weekend and can apply that as we move forward.
"There were a few Division I schools and several Division II schools there so we competed against some of the best competition out there and in this part of the country," Alesch continued. "Several guys were close to placing in the top 6 but came up just short.
"We need to work hard over the next week and half as we prepare to travel down to Fort Dodge Nov. 28 to take on Iowa Central in a dual," said Alesch.
