Redwood-River Valley Wrestling Results


Redwood River Riot Tournament

The Redwood-River Valley Badgers competed in the Redwood River Riot Tournament this past Friday and Saturday.  The Riot is one of the premier tournaments in southern Minnesota.  With a field of 31 teams and numerous state ranked wrestlers, it is one of the toughest tournaments in the state.  660 wrestlers competed in the varsity and junior varsity divisions.

The Badgers finished the tournament with 39 points, finishing in 25th place.  Two wrestlers advanced to the medal rounds, Conner Bertram at 120 lbs. and Cody Anderson at 195 lbs.  Bertram lost early and had to wrestle his way back to the medal round with back to back wins before losing in the consolation quarterfinals and again in the 7th place match.  Anderson had two straight wins before losing in the semi-finals to put him in the wrestle back round.  He won his next two matches, finishing with a 4-1 record and third place honors.

Eric Bommersbach and Brady Goblirsch both started out strong, winning their first matches and advancing to the quarterfinals.  Both wrestlers lost close matches and entered the wrestle back rounds.  Another tough loss by both wrestlers eliminated them from the tournament, one win away from the medal round.
