State Wrestling: S-M's Petrich hopes to erase lone loss with state title


As if Blake Petrich needed any more incentive.

Class 2A’s top-ranked 182-pound wrestler suffered his only loss of the season in the Section 8-2A championship match last weekend.

The three-time state wrestler from Staples-Motley will begin his quest for the finals against ninth-ranked Connor McCormick of Caledonia on Friday.
