The Section 5A wrestling pairings were released late this morning. The B-B-E Jaguars wrestling team has earned the number two seed for the upcoming playoffs. Seeded first was Kerkhoven-Murdock-Sunburg, who is also the defending section champion.
Earning the number three seed was Paynesville Area.
The B-B-E Jaguars host the first two rounds of the playoffs on Tuesday, February 14. They will face either New London-Spicer or Holdingford in the quarterfinals at approximately 7:30 p.m. that night at the B-B-E high school. It is my fervent hope that we will have a PACKED gym that night!
If the Jaguars advance out of the quarterfinals, they will compete in the Section Final Four to be held on Friday, February 17 at Holdingford high school. Two semifinal matches will begin at 6 p.m. that night at HHS. Keep that night open, and if we advance, plan on bringing every Jaguar fan within earshot to Holdingford!!!
