Wolverine wrestling

BRLD’s Daven Whitley pins his way to the 285-pound title at the Wisner-Pilger Invite on Saturday. This pin for Whitley came over Oakland-Craig’s JT Brands.

While there’s room to improve, Bancroft-Rosalie/Lyons-Decatur flashed signs of potential at the Wisner-Pilger wrestling tourney on Saturday.

As far as BRLD head coach Lance Sovde is concerned, if his wrestlers continue to put in the work, he is confident they will continue their upward trend as the season progresses.

“We were missing four varsity wrestlers, but the kids we did have there did well,” Sovde said. “I can see the improvement in each one of the kids every time they walk on the mat. I feel like we are getting where we want to go, it just takes time.”
