Packer wrestlers drop two in home triangular

The Austin wrestling team lost a pair of duals losing by a score 63-9 to Faribault and it lost 65-3 to Rochester Mayo in Ove Berven Gym Thursday.

Sean Donovan put up a solid performance on senior night for the Packers as he grabbed a 2-0 lead in the first period over Mayo’s Brennan Nelson. Donovan controlled the match and hung on to win 2-0 at 126-pounds.

Donovan was the lone senior competing for the Packers in the varsity dual.

“It felt pretty good to win. I just had to be patient,” Donovan said.

It’s been a tough year for the Packers (0-7 overall), but they’ve tried to make the most of it.

“We try to cheer on the younger guys and we work has hard as we can in the practice room,” Donovan said.

Tommy Fritz went 1-1 for the Packers as he beat Faribault’s Alex Hoy 4-0 and he lost to Mayo’s Ayden Messmer 13-7 at 152.
