Brock Davidson continued his quest for a top seed at the upcoming Eastern Dakota Conference wrestling tournament by winning three matches last week as Devils Lake High School hit the road for a trio of duals.

Devils Lake opened the lengthy road trip with a dual against Jamestown last Friday and dropped a 54-22 decision to the Blue Jays.

Davidson, a senior, picked up a pin in the match against Ryan?Hillerud at 152 pounds in 1:40.

He was one of four Firebirds to garner a victory against Jamestown.

Brody Bracken also came away with a victory after picking up a forfeit at 112 pounds.

Devils Lake wrestled a pair of duals the following day as the Firebirds dropped a 59-24 decision to Fargo North before traveling down Interstate 29 and falling to Wahpeton 57-24 in the final dual of the season.

Davidson continued his hot streak with a pair of pins. He took care of North’s Caleb Worral in 2:34, and pinned Cole Gilles in 3:09 later in the day.
