The Osakis wrestling team picked up two team wins during a quadrangular meet hosted by Eden Valley-Watkins on Friday, December 20.

The Silverstreaks wrestled their way to victories over Eden Valley-Watkins and Belgrade-Brooten-Elrosa and lost a match to Atwater-Cosmos-Grove City, a team that most years is among the best teams in the state and currently is ranked fourth in the Class A rankings.

The Silverstreaks were led by Brendon Coyer, who picked up three wins in the quad meet. Head coach Joey Andreasen has come to expect that from the most consistent wrestler in the lineup this season.

“He just keeps going about his business,” Andreasen said about Coyer. “There aren’t too many matches where we’re not sure if he is going to win or not.”

Not only has he provided consistent victories in the lineup for Osakis this year, but Coyer often picks up bonus points in those matches.

“He’s a pinner for us, so he always adds bonus points for the team,” Andreasen said.

Another highlight for Andreasen on Friday was a come-from-behind victory for Nils Hagen against Eden Valley-Watkins’ Cain Renner. Renner came into the match as a state-ranked wrestler and had an early 5-0 lead on Hagen. But Renner was unable to keep that lead, and Hagen wrestled his way back to win the match 17-10.

“That was kind of the highlight of the evening, I would say,” Andreasen said.
