Frazier, Beinborn, and Frey scored three points each for the team.
Brandon Mindham (120 weight class), Austin Jones (126), and Preston Baker (182) each earned six points on forfeits for Boscobel. Jake Neis (220) earned six points on forfeit for Cuba City.
“Overall, I was impressed with the improvements I saw from our wrestlers,” said coach Bobby Harry. “With four periodes under their belt, they really took a step forward on being comfortable out on the mat.”
Improved confidence was evident, according to the coach. He noted that the dual saw five freshmen on the varsity lineup.
“This is a very young team and to only lose by three points when they are competing against a team that is largely composed of upper classmen really speaks well of their progress,” Harry added.
The Bulldogs will host Riverdale in a dual on Friday at 7 p.m. They travel to Richland Center on Saturday, Dec. 19 for an invitational, competing against Baraboo, Belmont, Ithaca, River Ridge, Belleville, Hillsboro and Richland Center at 10 a.m.
