Sabre wrestling falls short to St. Cloud Tech in Sections


Maiah Cameron

The Sabre wrestling team has worked hard all season.

The Sartell Sabres Wrestling Team looked to move forward with their season Friday, Feb. 14th as they battled against the St. Cloud Tech Tigers.

The Sartell Sabres earned the 5th seed in sections due to their section and regular season record. They traveled to St. Cloud Tech, the 4th team in the section, as they wrestled to see who is going home and who got another chance to travel to the Minnesota state wrestling meet.

The Sabres came into the meet with a 11-7 regular season record. In their meeting this season, Sartell trumped the Tigers 39-36. The Sabres were led by senior Sam Fernholz.  He is 35-5 this season and has a total has 120 wins throughout his high school career.

The Sabres are a very young team. They have many juniors and sophomores wrestling for their varsity team. There is a lot to look forward to for the Sartell Sabres in the near future. The Sabres won a lot of close meets this season and also lost a lot of close meets. They were a very well balanced team but are also missing some pieces.

Their season was very fun and filled with lots of growth and success just fell short of the ultimate goal of a State Tournament Bid. The Sabres lost to St Cloud Tech.  Individual sections were Saturday, February 22nd.
