Cobbers Start Season On a Positive Note at St. Olaf Open.
Won the 125-pound weight class at the St. Olaf Open. He pinned All-Region wrestler Dante Lewis of UM-Morris in the semifinals.
(Northfield, Minn.)-- Doug Perry's 2003-04 Cobber wrestling squad started the year on a positive note by posting a 17-12 overall individual record. Three Concordia wrestlers won their individual weight class by posting perfect records. No team scores were kept at the event.
Leading the way for the Cobbers were David Ahmed (Fr., Conrad, Mont./Conrad HS), Kevin McBride (Fr., Eagan, Minn./Eastview HS) and Lee Rahrlien (So., Graceville, Minn./Clinton-Graceville-Beardsley HS) who went undefeated in the tournament - and won their respective weight classes. Ahmed was 3-0 in the 165-pound weight class. He had had one pin and posted two other victories on points.
Rahrlien, wrestling in the 157-pound weight class, was also 3-0 for the day. He won all his matches on points and never trailed in any match.
Perhaps the biggest surprise of the open for Perry was McBride. He only wrestled in two matches in the 125-pound weight division, but the two victories came against seasoned opponents. He posted the upset of the tournament when he pinned UM-Morris' All-Region wrestler, Dante Lewis in the semifinals. He then went on to beat Becker of Rochester Community College in the finals.
Other Cobber wrestlers that posted winning records were Justin Lessard (Jr., Crookston, Minn./Crookston HS) (2-1) in the 141-pound weight class, Mitch Gabrielson (Fr., Fergus Falls, Minn./Fergus Falls HS) (2-1) at 165, and Bryan Kvitek (Sr., Starbuck, Minn./Minnewaska HS) (2-1) in the heavyweight division.
Concordia will host the annual Cobber Open
on Saturday, November 22 at 9:00am in the Olson Forum.
