West loses, top wrestler is injured

Evan Jakes hurts knee during 170-pound bout


Koenigs win put West back on top 23-18, but Faribault’s Isaa VanThomme needed just 30 seconds to get a pin at 152 to give his team a 24-23 lead it would never relinquish. Faribault won five of the last seven bouts.

West’s Jake Russell capped the night with an impressive win at heavyweight. He took Nick Aldrich down in the first couple of seconds and played catch-and-release the rest of the way. The result was a 25-9 technical fall in 5:24.

“Jake was definitely aggressive out there tonight,” Buttell said. “He did a nice job; he just needs to keep it going.”

West competes at Le Sueur-Henderson on Saturday.
