The Simley varsity wrestling team placed 8th in a field of 29 teams during the nationally recognized wrestling tournament in Rochester called "The Clash". Simley started their tournament beating both Rapid City Central (S.D.) and Forest Lake, before losing to nationally ranked #5 Montini Catholic (IL) in the championship of the day 1 bracket. On day 2, Simley fell to Anoka who is nationally ranked, and ranked 1st in MN AAA, 36-30. They also fell to 2 very tough Illinois teams, Oak Park River Forest, and Washington. Simley looks to keep improving and take the next challenge of wrestling at the very difficult Cheesehead Invitational next weekend 1/5 and 1/6.
