Charger Grapplers Grab Three Wins

The ACGC wrestling season started with a bang last night as the team swept three matches in a quadrangular meet held on the Charger mats. The evening started off with a 47-12 rout of East Union, continued with a 45-18 romp over Nodaway Valley, and concluded with a 41-36 win over WCAC opponent West Central Valley.

Not only did the Chargers win three team matches---the individual results were even more impressive. In head to head competition ACGC individuals went 15-1 in their matches, and twelve of those fifteen wins were by fall! What the Chargers lack in numbers (eleven members on the team), they certainly make up in talent. In addition to the sixteen contested matches, there were twenty six uncontested matches which involved either a forfeit or a double forfeit.

Senior Cale Rowley and junior Cayden Jensen led the team, recording three falls each. Coming up with two pins were senior Christian Nolte and newcomer Tegan Slaybaugh.

Junior Dawson Muller recorded the fastest fall when he threw Kason Parker of East Union in thirty one seconds. Seth Danker also came up with three wins via a pin, a technical fall, and a decision.

Veteran Charger mentor Shawn Danker was obviously pleased with his team's performance, while also seeing room for improvement. "I can say our guys came out to wrestle tonight," Danker said. I think they know we have some open weights and they need to get bonus points in duals. Everyoe did well tonight, however we definitely have some things to improve on."

The team will travel to Greenfield on Saturday for the Riley Invitational Tournament at Nodaway Valley High School. First matches are scheduled for 10 AM.
