Charger Grapplers Drop Three Duals

The ACGC wrestlers team found themselves on the short end of three dual meets held at Ogden last night in a quad dual event. The Chargers lost duals to Southeast Valley, 51-18, and Ogden, 42-32, and Panorama, 38-26,

The results are somewhat misleading. Yes, ACGC did lose all three duals. However, in head to head contests the Chargers won 14 and lost 9 matches. Because ACGC is unable to fill several weights, they "lost" 14 matches due to forfeits, resulting in 84 team points surrendered to the opponents throughout the evening.

Given that, lets' take a look at individual performers for the Chargers. Three Chargers went undefeated for the evening, with Tegan Slaybaugh (14-3), Gunnar Larsen (8-1), and Seth Danker (18-0) each winning two contested matches and also claiming one forfeit. Season records, provided by coach Danker, are within the parentheses.

Going 2-1 were Dawson Muller (9-7), Cayden Jensen 11-6), and Cristian Nolte (14-4). Bryce Rochholz (7-8) and Deon Jackson (0-4) were both 1-2.

Danker remains undefeated on the season with a record of 18-0, as he claimed two technical falls yesterday in addition to a forfeit. Slaybaugh won by a technical fall, a pin, and a forfeit. Larsen also won by a technical fall in addition to a 4-3 decision, and a forfeit.

The Chargers recorded seven falls, with the fastest being by Bryce Rochholz at 195. Rochholz threw Colby Waltz of Panorama in 0:18.

"We had three duals that were pretty close," coach Danker commented. "We had several situations that could have turned the duals in out favor; just fell a little short. We had some good performances and some situations to improve on during Christmas break."
