The varsity wrestling team took fifth place at the DAC tournament on Saturday Jan. 12, at Crown Point High School.

“DAC is one of the hardest conferences in the state, and it was good preparation for sectionals,” Matthew Lechowicz (12) said.

Gelen Robinson (11) took first place in the tournament. Lechowicz and Branden Truver (10) added to the team score, placing second and Kodie Christenson (10) took fifth.

“Overall I don’t think any of us were satisfied, but with the amount of people that we had injured and unable to wrestle, we were still able to get fifth. As a team, before everyone got hurt, we were expected to do decent,” Robinson said.

The wrestling team travels to Portage to take on the Indians on Wednesday Jan. 16, at 6:30 p.m.
