Princeton senior Josh Linder, left, gets tied up by Little Falls junior Conor Swanson at 285 pounds, Tuesday. Swanson fell behind early in the match, but came back to lock up a cradle and pin Linder in the second period to close out the first of two dual wins for the Flyers on the night, 52-19.

Another pair of foes had little success against the Little Falls wrestling team, Thursday.

The Flyers toppled Princeton, 52-19, and Sartell-St. Stephen, 53-15, in a home tri to wrap up the regular season.

Seniors Frank Wilczek, Dillon Kifer and Adam Grams, juniors Connor Scherping, Jordan Petrone and Conor Swanson and eighth grader Justin Jenks led the Flyers with two wins apiece.

Wilczek, Grams, Swanson and Jenks each had two pins, while Kifer and Petrone had two bonus-point victories.

Seniors Luke Lodermeier and Brent Berger, junior David Copa, sophomores Trysten Ross and Dan Mushel and freshman Logan Kapphahn each added a win.

Little Falls wrestles at the Section 8AAA meet Saturday, Feb. 18, in Brainerd.
