ROCHESTER, Minn.-The first day of The Clash XVII did not go as planned for the Mitchell High School wrestling team.

The team dual tournament saw the Kernels drop each of their first three meets to Minnesota schools to finish in eighth place after the first day. Mitchell fell to St. Michael Albertville, 61-10, to start, followed by crushing 36-32 loss to Kenyon Wanamingo and a loss to Blaine, 38-30, rounded out the day.

Against Kenyon Wanamingo, Mitchell led 32-30 heading into the 285-pound match, but Jesse Jackson was able to pin Wyatt Winter at the end of the second period to secure the win for his team.

Carter Max was a bright spot for the Kernels, winning all three of his matches at 220 pounds. The senior began the tournament with an 18-5 major decision over St. Michael Albertville's Toby Dehn, followed by an 8-3 decision against Kaya Lindell, of Kenyon Wanamingo, before capping his day by pinning Blaine's Carter Ho in 1:53.

Beau Foote went 2-0 at 285 pounds, defeating SMA's T.J. Duerr, 4-2, and then earning a third-round pin of Blaine's Dylan Broulliard. Joe VanOverschelde also went 2-1-with two pins-at 160 pounds for Mitchell.
