Back to Back: Wolves are Class A State Champions: Meiners, L. Gode, M. Gode & Pesta All Tourney Team



LPGE-Browerville did what is so hard to do, repeat as the State Class A Team Champions. The Wolves, the #1 Seed, opened with Badger-Greenbush Middle River in the State Quarterfinals. Braden Thom, Cael Lorentz, Justin Crandall, Carter Meiners, Landon Gode, Mason Gode and Nye Becker all scored wins before BGMR won their first match. Riley Thom and Caleb Pesta rounded out the remaining victories for the Wolves, for a 44–25 win in the State Quarterfinals.

Next up was the State Semifinals, the third straight appearance for the Wolves, as Blue Earth Area was LPGE-Browerville’s next opponent. BEA has a bunch of good wrestlers and tested the Wolves throughout.

Wins from Braden Thom, Carter Meiners, Landon Gode, Mason Gode, Ted Stacey, Riley Thom, Caleb Pesta, Hans Holmquist and Levi Line, put away the eventual third place team, in a 39–18 win, which put the Wolves in the State Championship match for the second straight year.

The State Finals brought a familiar foe, Atwater-Cosmos-Grove City. The Falcons were the 2 seed and had been the second ranked team all season. The Wolves faced ACGC on December 15, and came away with a 41–15 win. LPGE-Browerville knew this time, with a State Championship on the line, it would be a grind and that’s exactly what happened.

In an instant classic, the momentum swings were something like none other. ACGC opened up winning the first matches and put the Wolves in 12–0 deficit. Carter Meiners started the Wolves in the right direction with his big win over State place winner Brady Holien, to put the Wolves on the board.

Landon Gode and Mason Gode brought the Wolves to a 12–11 deficit after winning two crucial matches. ACGC got the win at 145, before Ted Stacey evened the scoreboard at 15–15, after his major decision win.

ACGC got a big pin win at 160, putting the Wolves in a 21–15 hole, with five matches left.

Huge wins from Gabe Pesta and Caleb Pesta once again evened the score at 21–21.
