An injury default kept Park freshman Colin LaBrosse alive in the Class 3A state tournament in the 113-pound class Friday at the Xcel Energy Center.
In his first state tournament appearance, LaBrosse lost his opening match to Mound Westonka’s Sam Bennyhoff, who is ranked sixth in the state, 7-5 but got another shot after Bennyhoff won by injury default over Lakeville North’s seventh-ranked Collin DeGrammont.
DeGrammont could not wrestle his wrestleback match against LaBrosse, who moved on to face Owatonna’s Brandon Moen to begin Saturday’s action.
Wolfpack junior David Giadyu came close to pulling an upset off against Minneapolis South’s Brandon Strong at the 145-pound class, but couldn’t deliver in his first state tournament appearance.
Giadyu fell 5-3 to Strong in the opening round of the tournament and Strong did not win again to provide Giadyu an opportunity to continue in wrestlebacks.
