The State team dual tournament kicks off in Fargo, and Bismarck High is definitely the favorite.
The Demons will roll into the Fargodome as the No. 1 team in the state. This year, the defending state champions did not lose a match. They were a perfect 15-0 overall and 10-0 in the WDA.
One of the big pieces Bismarck returned in mid-January was 160-pounder Brandt Kringlie.
“I knew I would get sore pretty easily,” Kringlie said, “but it’s gotten better. It’s gotten better as it goes on.
“Our chances right now are really good. Coming from WDA, the runner-up was Century and I think we beat them by 80. Our chances are looking pretty good in duals we beat everyone by 10 to 20 points. So I’m pretty excited.”
