Eau Claire (WQOW) -- Eau Claire North will cap off a solid season with three Huskies heading to the 72nd-annual WIAA State Individual Wrestling Tournament.
Those three, freshman Mason Phillips (106), junior Justin Peterson (138), and senior Hunter Dahlby (182) will take part in the Division 1 competition at the Kohl Center.
"It's a big accomplishment sending three, we have never done that, so I feel kind of honored," says Dahlby, "it feels like I need to do everything I can to place down there. Because top three is kind of making history I guess."
"I'm sure everyone would hope we could send the whole team down there," Peterson says, "but three people is a good start, and next year we can keep improving and know what we need to beat, so you can always have goals to beat and to break."
"I am expecting a great atmosphere and, you know, going down there to enjoy myself," says Phillips, "but I am also going down there to take care of business. It's just another wrestling match and you have to work your butt off to come out on top."
News 18's Stephen Kelley will be at the Kohl Center, Thursday, so look for those reports at 6:00 and 10:00.
