The Valley City High School wrestling team isn't exactly known for its lower weight wrestlers.
Once you get to 138-pound class, you get into the state contenders, but the 106 to 132 pounders tend to be more inexperienced.
"We're really young down there," Valley City coach Brandon Larson said. "We've got some junior high kids going out there."
But in Tuesday's 40-33 dual win over Fargo South at the Hi-Liner Activity Center, it was a younger wrestler who came through.

King speech rediscovered by Ohio teacher, student
CLEVELAND (AP) â€” A recording of the Rev. Martin Luther King Jr. is getting new attention after being found in 2010 by an Ohio high school art teacher and student searching through items the school library was discarding.
The 1967 speech preserved on reel-to-reel tape was given, and found, at Glenville High School in Cleveland. In it, King says "Our power does not lie in Molotov cocktails. ... Our power lies in our ability to say nonviolently that we aren't gonna take it any longer."

The Valley City State University womens basketball team had a slower start than coach Jill DeVries would have liked.
In the first ten minutes of Sunday's 74-65 home win over Johnson and Wales (Colo.) University, the Vikings only hit two shots from the floor, despite leading 10-9.
But, DeVries said, the intentions were good.
The Valley City State University mens basketball team didn't have the best looking win Sunday against Johnson and Wales (Colo.) University.
After leading the game by 17 points at halftime, the Vikings were outscored 30-17 in the second half, primarily because of cold shooting.
The Vikings still finished ahead with a 57-47 score and VCSU coach Jeff Kaminsky was pleased nonetheless. It was the team's second win in as many days.
The Barnes County North girls basketball may have lost 61-41 to Northern Cass in the third place game of the Barnes County Tournament, but coach Randy Hooey felt looks could be deceiving.
"This was not a 20 point game, at all," he said. "It was a lot better game than that."
Early, the Bison held their own and even had an 11-2 lead midway through the first quarter.
The rest of the half, the two teams went back and forth, with Northern Cass going on a run and BCN catching up. In the final two minutes, BCN's Calby Hanson had five points to narrow the Jaguars' lead to 28-25 by halftime.
There are some losses that just donâ€™t sit well with a team.
For the Maple Valley girls, it was their lone loss of the year, 63-57 in overtime at home against Valley City Jan. 3.
â€śWeâ€™d been been thinking (about it),â€ť said Maple Valley eighth grader Rylee Nudell. â€śWe wanted a rematch ever since we played them last time.â€ť
Saturday at the W.E. Osmon Fieldhouse, the Raiders got their rematch with Hi-Liners and made sure the sequel turned out differently. This time, Maple Valley got the 52-46 win and took home the Barnes County Tournament championship.
