The AGH wrestling team took second in the Maple Valley Conference meet here Saturday, with Battle Creek-Ida Grove winning the title.
BC-IG won with 232 points, with AGH following with 208 and Woodbury Central with 172.5 points.
According to AGH coach Scott Phelps, the Pirates placed ten wrestlers in the finals.
"We had some very tight matches, and we won some of them and lost a few," Phelps said. "We didn't get the job done in the finals like we needed to to win the tournament."
The coach said he hopes his team keeps improving.
"The kids continued to work hard and give everything they have every time out," he said. "These tournaments will help us down the road as we approach the powerful BC-IG tournament and sectionals."
