Aaron Zosel (top) applies pressure on KMS’ Aiden Miller, who tries his best to stay away from a pin with a back bridge.  Zosel kept up the pressure and eventually recorded a pin, but KMS still won the match and moved on to the “Final Four” where it edged BBE by one point in the semifinals, but lost to LPGE-Browerville in the finals.

The KMS wrestling team fell just short of qualifying to state for the third-straight season. The Saints went into the Section 5A Tourney as the third seed, but after beating Benson in the first round (48-24), the Saints upset No. 2-BBE in the semifinals, Friday at Belgrade, 31-30, but then lost to top-seeded Long Prairie-GE-Browerville in the finals, 42-15.

KMS ended the season with a 14-6 overall record and will lose three wrestlers to graduation, Ryan Torkelson, Jon Tostenson, and Caleb Collins.

The KMS wrestlers still have a chance to punch their ticket to state when they take part in the Section 5A Individual Tournament this Friday and Saturday at Minnewaska Area High School.

A recap of KMS’ Section 5A quarterfinal match against the Benson Braves can be found in separate story beginning on page 8B of this week’s paper....
