The Austin wrestling team opened its season with a 65-3 loss to Albert Lea in Ove Berven Gym Thursday.
Kole Igou picked up Austin’s lone win with a 1-0 decision at 170 pounds.
“Igou wrestled a hard fought match. He did a nice job staying in good position, controlling his opponent and pushing the pace the whole six minutes,” Austin interim head coach Jer Osgood said.
