Faribault Falcon wrestling Head Coach Jesse Armbruster told KDHL during the Faribault Coaches Show at Bashers Saturday the Rumble On The Red National Individual Wrestling Tournament is tougher than the State Tournament.

Coach Armbruster believes his team will crack the dirty dozen top rankings in Class 3A before the season is over and knows the Owatonna Huskies aren't too happy about being ousted from the Section Tournament last year by his Falcons.

Coach Armbruster believes even though his team has only two wrestlers currently ranked in the top ten of their weight class they will have quality throughout their lineup making them a tough out come tournament time.

However as he pointed out, that doesn't come automatically.

Hard work in the wrestling room is a must for his team to get to the level they need to be at to defeat a quality team like Owatonna.

Here are the latest Guillotine Class 3A team and area individual rankings.  All Big Nine individuals are included here:

106 pounds- Freshman Luke Peterson of Farmington 4th, freshman Dylan Anderson of Apple Valley 8th and Rochester Mayo 8th grader Marshall Peters 10th.
