Back-to-back conference champs!

With their 54-9 win over Royalton/Upsala in the book tonight, the No. 2-ranked B-B-E Jaguars wrestling team has earned back-to-back Central Minnesota Conference championships! This is awesome! The Jaguars defeated the Royals 54-9 to complete the CMC schedule with a 6-0 record for the second year in a row.

This is just the fifth time in B-B-E school history that they have earned a team conference title. Now B-B-E's first two teams, the 1996-1997 team and latest two teams have won titles in the 33-year history of the program.

The Jaguars (20-2) take on Ottertail Central (8-8) later tonight to finish the triangular.

Below is a video clip from tonight's action against Royalton/Upsala:

In the second dual of tonight's action at B-B-E high school, Royalton/Upsala (10-8) has a 48-3 lead over OTC through the 170-pound weight.

Final score: Royalton/Upsala defeated the OTC Bulldogs by a 66-9 score.

*Update: the Bulldogs are currently a struggling program, and they gave up the first five weights with forfeits to the Jaguars. Entering the 132-pound match, the Jaguars have a 30-0 lead with No. 6-ranked Tyler Jensen facing off with an OTC senior to start the actual wrestling of the dual.

Tyler Jensen won by pin with an unofficial time of 2:25. Now the Jaguars are ahead 36-0.

No. 3-ranked Blaine Fischer won by fall (1:06) at 145 pounds. At 152, Maximus Hanson won a 12-5 decision. At 160 pounds, Dylan Kampsen lost a 6-2 decision.

Final score: B-B-E 63, OTC 12. The Jaguars are now 21-2 overall with a new school record for most wins in a season! The old record was 20 wins, which they earned in the 2017-2018 and 2019-2020 seasons.

More to come.
