New Prague High School's wrestling team split a pair of matches Tuesday, Dec. 23, at the Mankato East Triangular. New Prague opened with a 39-32 loss to Le Sueur-Henderson, then defeated the host Cougars 62-15.

The Trojans got a fall at 145 pounds from Jesse Cole to pull to within one at 21-20, but LSH got three falls and a decision in the next four matches to put things out of reach.
