ST. CHARLES - The Helias Crusaders were shorthanded by design.
The Crusaders took just nine wrestlers Saturday to the Gateway to the Best Duals at Lindenwood University. It was a tough event and Helias coach Travis Reinsch wanted the Crusaders' best to see top competitors.
"There was a lot of great competition," Reinsch said after the Crusaders wrestled in five duals. "Everywhere you looked, there was a great wrestler."
Three Crusaders finished with winning records.
