Cobras Advance to State!

Home Page Photo Windom/Mountain Lake/Butterfield-Odin ended their regular season not just at 19-5, but also with a ticket to the state tournament. The W/MLBO Cobras advanced on after defeating Morris Area-Hancock-Chokia-Alberta by a score of 37-28.

“I thought we wrestled well,” Head Coach of the Cobras Brad Schlomann noted, referring to the MAHCA match. The Cobras were seeded well because of good performances during the regular season, and that ultimately led to Adrian and Dawson-Boyd/LQPV fighting for the match with W/MLBO.

“Adrian was battling with [Dawson-Boyd/LQPV] and took a lot out of them. It didn’t give them time to recover, and by then we were on a roll.” Dawson-Boyd/LQPV pushed past Adrian, winning 33-26.

The one-seed from the north (Dawson-Boyd/LQPV) and the one-seed from the south (W/MLBO) met up to battle for the one open spot at the state wrestling tournament. The first time the two teams met, Dawson-Boyd/LQPV defeated W/MLBO, 43-30.

“We were able to put aside the first match and get ready for the finals.” Schlomann continued, “We wrestled really well, up and down the line-up. Whether we were favored or not, we did the job we needed to do.”

“Wrestling may seem like an individual sport, but it is not. Once you get into dual meet format it’s all about momentum. They (D-B/LQPV) were not able to get momentum. Every time they did something well, we stopped it the next match.”

The injury bug seems to hit every team at some point during the year, but it seemed to hit at a really poor time for the Cobras. “We’re hoping that by next week we’ll be able to have our healthiest line-up available. We’re getting closer and closer to being healthy.”

One of the wrestlers that just started to compete for the Cobras is senior Drake Borsgard. Drake suffered a very severe concussion during the opening half of the first football game against Martin County West. He was forced to sit out the remainder of the fall season, and wrestled his first match over the winter season on February 6th against Blue Earth. Borsgard also missed many days of school through the long and grueling process.

The team doesn’t need the senior leader just for wins on the mat, but in a much bigger role. “The emotional lift that he gives the guys,” Schlomann commented. “He’s a stable force. There’s that stability back in the line-up and the overall leader that he is. He’s been with us all along. He hasn’t missed a practice.”

Drake finished third place individually last year after beating Nate Lynn of Adrian for the bronze.

The section 3AA wrestling champion Cobras will wrestle on their first match at state on March 1st at Xcel Energy Center in St. Paul at 11:00 am. They will take on a very good Foley squad, who comes into the tournament at 25-1.

“It will be a very fun tournament for our guys. It’s a blast! Our kids, and especially our seniors, can leave a legacy on Cobra wrestling.”
