Wrestling: Rogers tops Fridley, Washington Tech

The Rogers Royals picked up two wins Saturday, 48-27 over Fridley and 54-21 over Washington Tech, at Fridley.

The win over Fridley was especially satisfying.

“We are 2-5 against them all-time and they are loaded with seniors this year,” said coach Chris Donnay. “So to come out against them and wrestle that well was good to see.”

Donnay said the newer wrestlers on the team “just keep impressing us every time they go out there.” Tyler Oberstart, first-year wrestler, got his first varsity win against Washington Tech.

Rogers (10-8) will host their own tournament next Saturday.
