Alta-Aurelia finishes dual matches

Alta-Aurelia’s wrestling team posted two wins in three matches and had a senior reach a milestone at East Sac County in Lake View Jan. 24 to conclude the dual matches.

A-AHS 220 and 285 pounder Nick Gaes notched his 150th career win.

The Warriors beat East Sac County (ESC), 48-36; Southeast Valley,(SV), 47-33 and lost to West Bend-Mallard, 48-24.

“The wrestlers came out ready to wrestle after a mixed up time schedule over the past few days (snow days, in-service days, etc.). As coaches we were impressed with the effort. They had some motivation to close out the dual season with a winning record and at the end of the night finished 14-12 with a couple of hard fought efforts due to some sickness and injuries, missed a couple of guys, but everyone stepped it up and put out just a little more effort,” said A-AHS coach Mike Fry.
