With a little more than a week under their belt, the Devils Lake wrestlers are geared up for their first matches of the season. The Firebirds officially kick off their season this Saturday.

The squad will be competing at the Early Bird Invitational in Minot. This is a first-year event and Devils Lake head coach Todd Lambrecht is excited about the opportunity.

“I’m looking forward to have it and interested to see how its run and operated,” he told the Journal. “Definitely excited to see how our guys do.”

The coach noted that practice has gone well. It’s a young team with limited mat experience. What the team lacks in years on the mat, its athletes make up with work ethic and desire, he stated.

“This is a tremendous group to work with,” he said. “They come to work every single day ready to go."
