State Wrestling: Kifer, Babineau hope for more success at state


Dillon Kifer is the area’s highest-ranked Class 3A wrestler.

He’s also the unluckiest.

The Little Falls senior suffered his third loss of the season in the Section 8-3A final. That planted the seventh-ranked 138-pounder against top-ranked Dayton Racer of Apple Valley in the first round of the Class 3A state individual wrestling tournament Friday at the Xcel Energy Center in St. Paul.
