It was a long day for the Razorback wrestling team but an exciting one as they competed at Lake City's 35th Annual Invitational on Saturday, January 27.

They were hoping for a repeat from last year's tournament - the first place team trophy but that could be tough when you're not wrestling with a full lineup - 10 wrestlers.

They trailed Northfield by about 30 points at the start of the tournament. That lead started to diminish with the help of the Razorback's upper weights.

From 152 to HWT, 15 out of 19 matches were won by falls. The Razorbacks had six wrestlers in the finals, Ethan Arett (106), Seth Peterson (152), Colton Krell (160), Morgen Moreno (195), Dylan Nirk (220), and Mitchell Oswald (HWT).

Tristan Rieken (182) was wrestling in the third place match. Rieken lost his match 7-4 to St. Charles' Logan Wendt.

All of their #1 seeds placed first - Ethan Arett, Colton Krell, and Morgen Moreno. Dylan Nirk and Mitchell Oswald were #2 seeds and that's how they placed.

Seth Peterson was seeded #3. He worked his way to the championship match with a win against Chatfield's Luke Ihrke by a fall in 1:33 in the first round. He then faced #2 seed Bo Noble of Medford winning by a fall in 2:58.

Peterson was one win away from making it to the top of the podium but that meant beating #1 seed Kolby Olson from Northfield. That match went 21 seconds into the second period when Peterson was able to roll Olson up onto his shoulders for a pin.

Peterson is definitely peaking at the right time with tournament time right around the corner.

Colton Krell won all three of his matches by falls. Morgen Moreno spent a total of 26 seconds on the mat. He won by falls in 13, 7, and 6 seconds.

Ethan Arett beat Mayo's Rick Kobayashi by a tech fall to start the day. He then beat Lake City's Mason West 3-1 to face Chase Murphy of Northfield in the finals. Arett would shut out Murphy winning 7-0.
