The Havre High wrestling team will begin defense of its Cut Bank Invitational team title Friday morning in Cut Bank. The Blue Ponies came back after winter break for a practice and match-up session with wrestlers from Chinook, Chester/J-I, Glasgow and Big Sandy on Monday afternoon at the Mat Corner. Now, HHS head coach Scott Filius' team will get back on the mat for real with two days of action in Cut Bank.
HHS comes into this weekend ranked No. 2 in Class A behind Belgrade, and the Ponies have a pair of top-ranked Class A wrestlers in Duell Stadel at 119 pounds and Casey Schaub at 171 pounds.
