Thirteen new members will experience wrestling underneath the Eagle Gymnasium for the first time on the same night it honors its past when Southern Door opens its dual meet season against Gillett/Suring Thursday night. The Eagles will look to replace its three seniors, Michael Bertrand, River Pawelski, and Tory Jandrin, who all made extended runs at last season’s individual state wrestling championships. Jared Conard and Fischer Pawelski will look to expand on their breakthrough years, capturing all-Packerland conference honors.
Last season, the Eagles defeated the joint squad 46-21, led by five pins.
You can catch the action with Tim Kowols and Greg Letter beginning at 6:30 p.m. with the pre-match show on 104.1 WRLU followed by the match on the radio and on Facebook Live at 7 p.m.
