West Fargo, ND (WDAY TV) - Just three years ago West Fargo was the up and coming program that was hoping they'd have enough to knock off the big boys from Bismarck.

Fast forward to the present and the Packers have a shot at three titles in four years. A big reason why has to be the Kragness brothers, Kollin and Kyle, who each finished in the top six at state last year, It was Kyle who clinched the dual championship for the Packers last year. They’re ready for another run at a title starting Thursday.

Kollin Kragnes – West Fargo, Ranked 2nd at 138: “We always wrestle against each other, trying to get practice and we just get mad at each other a lot too. We stay after practice most days and work with each other on things we want to do."

Kyle Kragnes – West Fargo, Ranked 6th at 152: “When we were little we always dreamed of becoming State Champions together. It would be really cool now that we have actually gotten to high school and realize we can actually do it. It's just really exciting.”

The team duals begin Thursday at the Dome. The Packers face Minot. The Packers qualified 17 individuals for state.
