The Neligh-Oakdale wrestling team got the season started Thursday night at a tough meet at Mount Michael Benedictine in Elkhorn.
The Warriors went 0-3 as a team, just barely falling to Bishop Neumann, Mount Michael Benedictine and Douglas County West.
Against Bishop Neumann, Jayden Arehart pinned Bobby Hageman in the 160 pound class to lead the Warriors.
Against Mount Michael, the Warriors were just barely edged out, 36-34. Cameron Wilkinson, Cade Wilkinson, Arehart, Jose Luna and Kaleb Pofahl all earned a victory to keep the dual close. The lack of a full roster doomed the Warriors, as Mount Michael earned all its points via forfeit.
Against Douglas County West, the Warriors fell 27-24. Cameron Wilkinson and Andrew Herley both came out with wins.
The Warriors now take a day to recover before traveling to the Creighton Invite on Saturday.
