Everyone else is splitting their week’s record, so why shouldn’t the Rush City/Braham grapplers be any different? In a pair of triangulars last week, RC/B lost twice, but then won twice, with all four matches being on one of the team’s home mat.
On Thursday, Jan. 28, the team fell to Oglivie 46-30, and then lost to Pierz 51-25. The next day, RC/B topped St. Agnes 42-36, and rolled to an easy 60-6 win over Brooklyn Center.
The team’s season record now sits at 3-6.
