Wrestling started at 195# where Ethan Swiggum would put a cradle on his opponent and pin him in the second period. At 220#, Stephen Ronnfeldt would use a fireman’s carry and transition to a cradle to score points in period one. The match would go the distance, with Ronnfeldt winning by major decision 14-3. At 285#, Jerrod Osterkamp lost by decision 5-0. PdC would forfeit at 106#. At 113#, Chase Watson lost by decision 5-4. At 120#, Reid Koenig received a forfeit. There was a double forfeit at 126#. At 132#, Blake Garcia lost 6-5. At 138#, Traeton Saint would use several cradles for near fall points. In the end, Saint would win a high scoring match, 18-11. At 145#, Tyler Smock would make quick work of his opponent and pin him with a half Nelson in the first period. At 152#, Magnus Goltermann would score his first career fall. In period one, Goltermann would use a chicken wing to turn his opponent. In period two, Magnus would put his opponent away and pin him. At 160#, Nick Rogge lost by fall. PdC forfeited 170# and 182#. Richland Center won 33-31. 

The loss dropped the Blackhawks to 12-4 in the dual season. The next grappling action for PdC will be on the road Thursday, Jan. 26 for their final conference meet versus the ninth ranked team in the state, Lancaster. Go Blackhawks!
