Minnesota West’s King Blanchette was 1-2 at 197 pounds. And heavyweight Trent Rogich was 1-2 with a fall.

The Pwae brothers, and Blanchette, are former Worthington Trojans.

“We didn’t wrestle well, but I saw a lot of positives,” said West head coach Bryan Cowdin. “It’s a young season. We have work to do. I thought Blanchette had a great day although he lost some close matches. He wrestled well and created many opportunities to win, but came up short.”
