Chargers Win One of Four at Kuemper Duals

Updated: Jan 18

The ACGC wrestling team went 1-3-1 in dual matches yesterday at the Kuemper Catholic duals in Carroll. Although the Chargers won nineteen out of the thirty contested matches, forty matches were forfeits. Of the forty forfeited matches ACGC was credited with fourteen won by forfeit, and twenty six lost by forfeit.

If forfeitures were thrown out, the Chargers would have won three team matches, while losing one and tying one. But, alas, that is not how the matches are scored, since forfeits are in fact included in team scoring. The Chargers defeated Johnston 35-33 in its lone team victory of the day.

"Saturday was a tough day when you look at the team scores which show that we were one and four. We had one dual tie but lost on the tenth criteria and lost another dual by one point," Charger coach Shawn Danker said following the meet.

"We didn't have three guys in the lineup--Austin Wetzel, Gunnar Larsen, and Devon Jackson. With those guys I think we could have gone four and one. But we had some really good performances on the day."

Those good performances included ones by Cale Rowley (19-2) and Cayden Jensen (20-13) who each won four matches on the day. Rowley also picked up a win by forfeit to go 5-0, while Jensen suffered one loss. Seth Danker (27-1) was 4-0 which included three technical falls and one forfeit. He now holds the ACGC-Guthrie Center record for technical falls in a season.

Tegan Slaybaugh (25-5) was 3-1 for the day in head to head competition and also won a match by forfeit. His loss was to Eli Beccera of Missouri Valley, who is ranked second at 106, by a 6-5 decision. Cristian Nolte (22-7) also had a good day on the mat, finishing with a 4-1 record at 170 lb. All four of his victories were by fall, with three of them being in less than one minute.

Rowley, wrestling at 152, recorded the fastest Charger pin when he threw Carter Wieland of Kuemper in twenty seconds.
