ELDORA – The South Hardin-BCLUW wrestling team won a close dual with Sumner-Fredericksburg to delight the home crowd at South Hardin High School in the last wrestling action of 2022 against the Cougars and Baxter on Tuesday, Dec. 20.

SH-BCLUW defeated S-F 43-42 on criteria, earning a bonus point for receiving five wins by forfeit compared to just four for Sumner-Fredericksburg. Baxter defeated the Storm, 36-25.

Zaden Eggers, Sean May and Alex Paxson had their arm raised twice for the Storm on Thursday. Eggers was the only Storm grappler to win two head-to-head matches, winning by fall against S-F’s Trace Meyer and winning a 13-1 major decision against Baxter’s Maddox Peters.

The Storm’s record is now 5-9 in duals this season, with the Storm winning three of their last five duals of 2022. SH-BCLUW returns to action on Thursday, Jan. 5 in Conrad against AGWSR and Denver.
