Local boys advance to state wrestling

Sports

At Byron, the toughest wrestling sectional in the state in class 1A took place. Dakota had five wrestlers in the finals – the most from any school. In the 106 lb. final, Dakota’s sophomore Maddux Blakely lost to Aurora Christians’ Joey Mylin to a 5-1 decision. At 112 lbs., Dakota’s junior Connor Elmer was on top of his game. He defeated Princeton’s Matthew Harris by a fall of 1 minute and 20 seconds. At 120 lbs., another Dakota sophomore, Lucas Sutherland had a tight match with Aurora Christian’s Nate Orosco. Sutherland came up just short, dropping a 6-4 decision.
