Cumberbatch helps team win national duals tourney
Justin Cumberbatch’s wrestling season was not over after winning the Class AAA title at 195 pounds this past winter.
The Alexandria junior recently wrestled as a member of the Minnesota Elite team that won a national duals tournament in Indiana over the weekend of April 12. Cumberbatch had five wins and just two losses in the meet to help secure the win for the Minnesota Elite Golden Gophers in a field of 22 different teams.
He had one pin, one major decision and three decision wins. His two losses were both by decisions.
Cumberbatch’s teammates, Mike Schluter and Dustin Neu, also competed in the tournament as members of the third Minnesota team. Their team finished first in their pool of teams. Schluter went 4-2 over the weekend, while Neu finished 2-4.
