State Class AAA individual wrestling update: Cumberbatch advances
Alexandria sophomore Justin Cumberbatch, 220 pounds, won his opening match in the State Class AAA individual wrestling tournament this afternoon, earning him a spot in the quarterfinals tonight, Friday, beginning at 6 p.m.
Blake Olhausen, wrestling at 120 pounds, fell in his opener to Travis Swanson of Cambridge-Isanti 6-0 and Tony Hubbard, 145 pounds, lost to Jake Hanson of Rochester 7-1.
Both Olhausen and Hubbard will have to wait until after the quarterfinals in their weight classes to find out if they will continue their state tournament run in the wrestlebacks. If the wrestlers who defeated them win their second match, the Cardinal wrestlers will continue on in wrestlebacks. If they lose, the Alexandria wrestlers will see their individual seasons come to an end.
