This week’s Metro Sports Commission player of the week is St. Cloud Apollo High School wrestler Mitch Bengston.
Bengston helped Apollo to a 2nd place finish at the Tom Keating Memorial Tournament in Foley last week with four pins. Bengston took home first place in the 138 pound bracket with all of his pins coming in last than one minute and 30 seconds.
The outstanding showing at the Keating is another impressive finish in a strong season for the senior Bengston. late last month took home the 138 pound title at Minnesota State-Moorhead’s “Rumble on the Red” tournament.
The 2nd place finish for Apollo at Foley was the second tournament silver for the Eagles and Bengston this season who are even at 3-3 in conference matches so far this season.
