Individual results from Rochester Invite

Here are the individual results from the Rochester Invitational.  Also below is a link to a PDF of the brackets from the tournament.

I think this is the last year the Spartans will be at this tournament.  Next year they plan on wrestling at the Kasson-Mantorville Swalla Duals, which is also in southern Minnesota.  This year, the tournament was won by Simley who is currently ranked 1st in Class AA (D2).  They defeated Kasson-Mantorville in the championship bracket 41-21.  Kasson-Mantorville is ranked 2nd in Minnesota Class AA.  To give you an idea of how good these teams are, Simley finished five spots ahead of Wisconsin Rapids in the ultra-competitive dual tournament The Clash at the beginning of this year.  Kasson-Mantorville lost in a head-t0-head dual against Rapids by a score of 38-26.

In other words, Sparta will have some good competition next year.  The dual format also has a better guarantee when it comes to matches than tournaments.  Spartan wrestlers had numerous byes at Rochester this year.  Ben Schaitel went 0-2 in matches wrestled, but byes propelled him to sixth place.  Now onto the individual results…
