Hi-Liners Wrestling Downs Packers

VALLEY CITY, N.D. ( -I couldn’t be more proud of this team!  Our boys were on a mission and they all knew what they needed to do. This was West Fargo’s first Eastern Dakota Conference loss in five years. What a fun day, and what a fun squad to coach.

Coach Hansen told the boys Friday’s practice was the best practice he’s witnessed in years and it showed today.  

The Hi-Liners move to 2-0 in the EDC and are in first place.  It’s only November and we have along ways to go, but we are on the right track.

Off to Fargo North on Tuesday JV at 6:30 Varsity at 7:00.  North will put mostly a full team on the mat.
