Bulldogs win 3 in Belmond-Klemme

In the final Top of Iowa Conference quadrangular of the season, Lake Mills won three dual meets, including a big win over West Hancock.

The Bulldogs squared off against host Belmond-Klemme to start and rolled to a 60-21 victory. After the victory over the Broncos, the team wrestled No. 11-ranked West Hancock, who entered the meet with a 17-1 dual record on the season.

The Bulldogs burst out of the gate, taking eight of the first nine bouts to go ahead 39-6. The Eagles would run off three straight pins, but it was too little, too late. Lake Mills took the dual, 51-24.

“Our kids wrestled really well against West Hancock,” said coach Alex Brandenburg. “They have a really good team and it was nice to get a solid victory as our season starts to wind down.”

In the nightcap, the Bulldogs hammered their neighbors to the east, Northwood-Kensett, 72-6. “It was good to get back on the mat after a couple recent weeknight cancellations,” Brandenburg said. “We just need to keep improving as we get closer to the postseason.”

With the wins, the No. 4-ranked Bulldogs ran their dual record to 23-0.

Several individuals finished the night 3-0 in their matches: Kinser Hanson, Garrett Ham, Jack Ramaker, Dalton Thorson, Alex Beaty, Brett Peterson, Casey Hanson and Elijah Wagner.
