The Pequot Lakes/Pine River-Backus Road Crew wrestling team attended the Malecek Wrestling Team Camp at Chula Vista Resort in Wisconsin Dells on June 24-27. The team went 7-1 on the week and won the championship in the John Smith Division (Silver, 17th overall).
There were 65 teams representing Minnesota, Wisconsin and Illinois, as well as a few from Iowa.
The Road Crew wrestlers also competed in an individual tournament June 25, where each wrestler got three matches.
“This is the third summer we have attended this camp,” Coach Travis Hoffarth said in an email. “We go to improve and have fun as a team at the water parks. We were able to accomplish our goals and make a lot of good memories. Our kids improved so much in a week, we are really proud of the way they competed and represented our program and communities while at the resort.”
