Two wrestlers qualify for State
April 29, 2021
Two Petersburg High School wrestlers will head to the Alaska School Activities Association Wrestling State Championships in May after placing first in their weight classes at Regionals.
Jonas Baekkelund placed first in the 171 pound weight class at the ASAA Division II Southeast Alaska tournament in Ketchikan last weekend. Baekkelund, a freshman, pinned his way to the final round to face off against Wrangell High School's Ethan Blatchley, said Coach Jeff Davidson. The two students had wrestled before, and Davidson said Wrangell's coach had a solid plan, but Baekkelund pulled ahead.
