If you follow Minnesota prep wrestling, you know that this was a pretty big weekend where some of the best teams from not only Minnesota but the country come to compete in Rochester. Owatonna finished in the top-10 this weekend, 7th, which is a pretty good showing considering the talent that travels to the Med City. It was an all Minnesota top-10 this year as Simley a nationally ranked team in numerous online publications won with 204.5 points.
