As the final week of regular season drew to a close, the Annandale-Maple Lake Lightning wrestlers were aware that two victories would begin the post-season with a shock. However, it would take a sufficient amount of effort to get ahead of their challengers, the Sauk Center-Melrose Mainstreeters and St. Thomas Academy Cadets. Both Teams provided exemplary talent, but the Lightning were prepared to brew up a storm.
Thursday night brought a long haul for ANML, trekking an hour to Sauk Center for the Mainstreeter matchup. The grueling bus ride didn't stifle the grapplers’ intensity, though. The boys came, saw and conquered, winning all but three matches. The final results would reflect their dominance, winning 54-13.
