On Thursday night, ZM took on the #2 AA ranked Kasson-Mantorville Comets. The atmosphere was awesome, as KM looked to avenge their HVL conference loss to ZM last year. ZM started out the night racing to 24-3 lead, but then hit the heart of the KM lineup featuring 3 #1 ranked wresters, a #2, and a #4. When the dust settled, KM took the dual 40-24.
