Van Meter Earlham wrestlers hosted a quad on Tuesday night in the South Gym. The Bulldogs started off the night with a win over Southwest Valley of Corning 76 – 6. Next up was a hard fought dual with the Mt. Ayr Raiders. Nic Swalla picked up his first varsity win of the season on his way to a 3-0 night and the Bulldogs came away with the win 57-21. Van Meter Earlham dropped a nail biter in the finale in a dual that came down to the final match. The fourth ranked Winterset Huskies came away with the win 36 – 25. Colby Wiederholt, Caleb and Nic Swalla, and Derrin Sesker all went 3 – 0 on the night while a couple of freshman, Mason Drake and Jackson Boese, had nice nights going 2 – 1.
Wrestlers take the mat at home for the last time this season and will celebrate Senior Night on Thursday, January 23rd. Wrestling begins at 5:30.
