Wellman, IA – Last night in front of a packed house at Mid-Prairie High School, the Golden Hawk wrestling team posted their fourth dual win of the season in a split with Tipton and West Liberty in Cedar Valley Conference double dual action. The Golden Hawks matched up first with the Tigers and dominated the event in a 60-24 victory. Mid-Prairie lost just one contested match in the dual and was led by Jared Draper at 120, Kendall Bontrager 132, Phirom Peterschmidt 145, and Nearoth Peterschmidt at 182 who all recorded falls in their matches with the Tigers. Senior Stephen Jones said wrestling in front of the home crowd was great.

“It was great. Usually going to other meets or tournaments we don’t really have that big of a crowd cheering for us and it was defiantly great to have the student body and all the parents’ support.”

Mid-Prairie then battled perennial power West Liberty with the Comets scoring a 49-24 win. The Golden Hawks posted five total wins in the dual. Josh Murphy at 106 and Phirom Peterschmidt at 145 each won their bout by fall. At 182 Nearoth Peterschmidt was a winner by a 5-0 decision while Steven Jones held off Gage Shellady at 195 for a 5-4 decision. It was an intense atmosphere for the only home duel of the season for Mid Prairie. Head coach Justin Garvey was pleased with the effort.

“We had some really close matches. Nearoth Petershmidt and Stephen Jones had two real intense matches and the whole student body was into it and we were able to come out on top with two decisions there. I think this gives all our kids a lot of confidence going forward. We’ve won four duels now, I don’t know when the last time was we won four, it’s double the amount from last year and the guys are getting better, we just hope to put some more (wins) on the board.”

UP next for the Golden Hawk wrestlers is the North Linn tournament in Troy Mills Saturday.
