In the finals Kaiser would take on Christian Olson of Dawson/LQPV. Olson is a highly rated HWT in Class AA and we knew it would be a tough test for William. In the first period Kaiser worked hard for a takedown but was not able to get one. Olson couldn't do anything with Kaiser either. In the second William took down and almost gained ,an es- cape. Olson was able to control Kaiser and got a turn half way through the pe- riod and got the fall and the champi- onship. William wrestled well all day and gave us a lot to cheer about.

The week was high- lighted by a number of good individual performances. This was only the second home event of the year. This was our Parents Night and Senior Night. The team took a few minutes to honor their par- ents for all of their extra hard work and support that they give us all year. Thanks again to all of the parents with- out you nothing is possible. Five senior wrestlers and three sen- ior cheerleaders were honored for the last time in our home gym. Natalie Sit- ter, Anna Nelson, and Kelsey Reis- dorph have done a great job over the past few years as cheerleaders and will be missed next year. Graduating wrestlers include Andrew Dittel, Tay- lor Stotesbery, John Eustice, Travis Diekmann, and William Kaiser. An- drew Dittel has wrestled 125 for the last two years. He is a two year letter winner and is one of our team captains. Taylor Stotesbery has been on the wrestling team for five years. He is a four year letter winner, a team captain, and academic all conference. John Eustice is a six year member of the wrestling team.

Jorden thought that he had the lead at that point and did not want to risk losing his position by going for the fall as time ran out. Jorden ended up losing 4-3 in a good effort. In the fifth place match he was able to score in every period and took a 7-2 lead into the third period against Cory Mccung of Fossten-Bagley. In the third Mccung scored three take- downs, but it was not enough as Roggenbuck was able to keep the lead and get the 10-8 win. Travis Diekmann and Dimitri Cuneo also placed 6th on the day. Travis Diekmann wrestled a good match in the second round of the wres- tle backs against Cody Kittleson of Minnewaska. He did a number of things well and scored in every period to pick up a 10-0 win. We had a number of wrestlers have good performances in loses. Isaac Cloos at 119 has worked very hard for us and just seems to turn the wrong way or riot be able to fall right to get the win. At 125 Andrew Dittel was in his matches, but could not come up with a win. At 189 Dillan Roggenbuck wrestled hard all day. He made some mistakes in the first match, but came back and wrestled very well in his sec- ond match. He got the takedown in the first period against Sam Carruth of Benson and controlled things well until the end of the third period. In4he third he was down and tried to do too much. Carroth was able to tip him to his back as time ran out to tie the score. In over- time, Dillan came close to getting the winning takedown, but Carruth coun- tered to keep the score tied. In the first 30 second overtime Roggenbuck chose down and could not score. In the sec- ond 30 second overtime Dillan was not able to hold Carmth down and gave up the escape and could not get a take- down as time ran out. This was the last regular season ac- tion for the Mat Men. This next week they will travel to KMS to take on Ben- son in the first round of the Section 3A Team tournament. The winner of this match will wrestle #3 seeded KMS for the right to travel to YME for the Sec- tion 3A Final Four on Saturday.

The transaction fee for a resident annual fishing license, for example, will be only 54 cents. That's likely less than it would cost to drive to a license vendor. DNR licenses will continue to be available 24 hours a day by simply placing a toll-free call to 888-665- 4236. Possessing a Minnesota driver's li- cense or state of Minnesota identifica- tion.card will be' mandatory for adults age 21 or older to purchase a resident license. The only exception relates the Religious Freedom Act. "Years ago we made license sales available by computer and phone," said Michaels. "Now we've reduced the fees for these transactions. Our strategy is to adapt to what the cus- tomer wants - and that's to have low- cost and convenient options." The DNR does intend to reduce the number of terminals it distributes to li- cense vendors from about 1,750 to 1,600. This reduction will generate about $1 million in savings over five years. The DNR will maintain an effi- cient .distribution of termfnals through- out the State. THE CLASSfl)H]i Minnesotans who buy their hunting, fishing and other Department of Natu- ral Resources' (DNR) licenses at retail outlets will soon do so via a new elec- tronic licensing system. Effective Feb. 18, DNR retail li- cense sales will be available on new touch-screen terminals that allow sales clerks to be more efficient when in- putting data and outputting licenses. "Hunters, anglers and trappers alone account for about 3.3 million license transactions a year," said Steve Michaels, DNR License Center man- ager. "We are moving to new terminals to stay in step with advances in tech- nology, data management, and cus- tomer service." The DNR switched from hand-writ- ten Iicenses to electronic-generated li- censes in 2000. This is the first major change in license sales and manage- ment equipment in 10 years. In addition to the new terminals, the DNR wants license buyers to know: Later this year the transaction fee for resident licenses that do not require a registration tag and are purchased from the DNR's Web site will drop from $3.50 to thre percent of the cost Trophies, Awards, Plaques, Mugs, Gigs, Vinyl Graphex, Wall Art, Signs, Decals, Reflective Decals, Caps, Jackets, Spirit Wear, Jerseys, T's PrinL FULL O.OLOR I00ann00r00! weprintonanythingbutpaper.c'om r Seize The Moment...
