From the Menomonie Wrestling Club Facebook page:
Our Menomonie Mustang wrestlers represented our city very well yesterday. We had 12 boys and 1 girl compete at Eau Claire North yesterday for the WIAA D1 Sectional Tournament. Boys needed to finish top 2 to punch their ticket to State, girls needed to finish 1st.
We ended up with 3 kids punching their tickets to the WIAA State Tournament that will start this Thursday at the Kohl Center in Madison. We also had some kids fall just short of qualifying.
Here are the results from Sectionals.
Girls 165 - Rhyenne Fuerstenberg - 2nd
