In the nightcap, Lake Mills wrestled host Clear Lake and prevailed, 48-26.

“Overall, we wrestled much better against Clear Lake,” Brandenburg said. “It was great to reach 20 dual wins in a season where 16 of our 20 wrestlers are freshmen or sophomores.”

These were the last two regular season duals for Lake Mills, who finished with a 20-11 record. All 11 losses came to ranked teams.
