Lake Mills Splits Triangular
On Thursday night, the Bulldog wrestlers competed in two dual meets in Clear Lake. The first dual of the night pitted Lake Mills against 2A ranked Hampton-Dumont-CAL, and the opponent dominated 55-18. “It was one of our worst performances of the season,” said Coach Alex Brandenburg. “We could have made this a much closer dual if we had wrestled better.” 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.
