The section tourney will take place at the Ralph Engelstad Arena in Thief River Falls.

    The postseason nears for another Crookston team. This time, it will be the wrestlers fighting for a section title in the Section 8A Tournament. The Pirates came away from the seeding meeting with the five spot and will take on Fosston-Bagley (11-6, 3-1 Section 8A) in the quarterfinals.

    Crookston finished the regular season with a record of 11-4 overall and a section mark of 4-2. One of those two losses came at the hands of Fosston-Bagley by a 40-37 final. The Brawlers not only scored 18 unanswered points in the last three matches but also put a halt to Crookston’s 10-dual winning streak.

    Should the Pirates advance to the semifinals, they will likely meet the reigning Section 8A Champion and 2018 State Runner-Up, No. 1 Frazee (8-7, 2-0 Section 8A).

    Crookston’s match against Fosston-Bagley will take place on Saturday, February 16 at 12:30 p.m. in Thief River Falls.
