Section 8-3A Wrestling: Boran, Flickinger, four Flyers advance to state


It’s a first for Jeff Flickinger and it’s been long enough to almost be a first again for Luke Boran.

The two Brainerd Warrior seniors survived true second-place matches Saturday at Brainerd High School to advance to the Class 3A state individual tournament.

Boran last went to state as an eighth-grader. He pinned Little Falls’ Jordan Petrone in 1:14 during his 152-pound true second match to return.
