State wrestling: Vassar third, Carlson sixth

 

The stands of the Xcel Energy Center saw the most black, white, and silver in years over the weekend, all thanks to the qualification of four Annandale-Maple Lake Lightning wrestlers accomplishing state championship berth.  
For 113-pound freshman Nate Carlson, 120-pound sophomore Tanner Vassar, 132-pound senior Joe Mosley and 195-pound junior Spencer Ogden, the Minnesota State Championship Tournament was the culmination of their season.  
Vassar’s efforts led to a third-place finish, while Carlson took sixth.
