MOORHEAD, Minn. — Minnesota State University Moorhead senior Blake Bosch advanced to the championship finals at 133 pounds to lead the Dragons during Session 3 of the Super Region 3 tournament.
Bosch (27-1) won a 17-7 major decision over Josh Walker of Upper Iowa. Bosch will wrestle this afternoon for his second straight regional championship against Naquan Hardy of McKendree.
Sophomore Kristian Vazquez remains alive at 141 pounds. He won his first match in the wrestleback round against Louie Sanders of Minnesota State via a 15-11 decision. In his second match of the day, he lost a 7-5 decision to Jordan Roths of Upper Iowa. Vazquez (14-11) will wrestle Brad Irwin from the University of Central Missouri in the fifth-place match. If Vazquez wins, and has not lost to the individual who finishes fourth, there will be a true-fourth place match, which would give Vazquez a shot at nationals.
