Demons vs. Patriots | VideoLee Timmerman | 2/1/2013
The Patriots are ranked third in Class A, while the Demons are second. Each team has athletes who have made major improvements this season.
"We`ve had a lot of great leaps and bounds through Hunter Bondeson at 160 pounds. He`s on fire right now. He`s wrestling hard. His technique has come around. He`s gotten a lot stronger. Nate Humann down at 113 has done some great things for us this year. Shawn Greenwood, who`s actually wrestling up a weight at heavyweight, he`s done great things for us there. We have kids rising to the challenge and it`s great to see. It`s great to be a part of," said Century head coach Jerald Lemar.
Bondeson may have the biggest challenge tonight. He should match-up against top ranked Ryan Blees. Blees is a wrestler who his coach says had honed all aspects of the sport.
"Early it used to be his bottom wrestling that needed to get more focus but he`s tough to ride now so he`s pretty much a polished wrestler in all three phases on the top, on bottom and one his feet," said Bismarck co-head coach Scott Knowlen.
The BHS Karlgaard gym is where these rivals will wrestle at the top of the hour.
