SARTELL — Jeff Flickinger and Levi Rubin won by fall for the Brainerd Warriors in a 34-21 loss to the Sartell Sabres in a Central Lakes Conference meet Tuesday night.


Dan Babineau, Tyler Spangler, and Nate Adams won by decision for the Warriors in their first dual meet of the season.

“We had a few matches that we were in,” Warriors co-head coach Mike Boran said. “You’ve got to win the close matches. Sartell is a much improved team this year. They wrestled well.

“We were a little bit behind, but it’s a long season. We’ll keep working and we’ll be better by the end of the season.”
