The Bloomer/Colfax Raptors wrestling team had busy start to the new year with a Heart O’ North road dual last Friday followed the next day by several head-to-head competitions with area schools at the Dragon Duals host by Osseo-Fairchild/Augusta/Fall Creek in Osseo.
Bloomer/Colfax made a Friday night trip to Cumberland for a HON showdown but were chewed up by the Beavers, 48-29, after surrendering five forfeits in the January 4 dual.
The Raptors had a short turnaround as they made the early morning trek to Osseo-Fairchild High School to compete in the Dragon Duals. Although results for the January 5 dual tournament were incomplete as of Monday afternoon’s press time, trackwrestling did show that the Raptors took a pair of victories beating host Osseo-Fairchild/Augusta/Fall Creek 48 to 36 and Independence/Gilmanton 48 to 18.
For a second straight week, Bloomer/Colfax will have back-to back competitions on Friday and Saturday, wrestling in Barron on January 11 before partaking in the Ladysmith Invitational on January 12.

Bloomer/Colfax won five of the eight contested matches when it traveled to Cumberland last Friday evening, January 4 including two by fall and another via a technical fall but the Beavers received five forfeits and posted a trio of pins to triumph 48-29 in the HON dual.
