Not to be outdone, the youth K-6 dual team finished 3rd overall out of 32 teams in the NYWA State Duals held in Rochester. On Saturday, the youth grapplers beat Hutchinson, Minneota and Brainerd to reach the championship pool on Sunday. In the first match of the championship, ZM fell to Pine Island. ZM rebounded nicely and took out Chatfield in the third place overall match. You guys make us VERY proud!
