The Wayne State College wrestling team faced tough opposition during their second meet at the Dakota Wesleyan Open in Mitchell, South Dakota on Saturday, Nov. 10.

“The tournament was twice as big and twice as tough [as last weekend], with several top teams from NCAA Division II competing,” head coach Greg Vander Weil said. “[The students] competed well and are showing improvement each week.”

In the 149-pound weight division, junior Hunter Weiss from Beatrice led the team with two consecutive wins: one by decision over Jack Kyle of Buena Vista, and the other by decision over Clayton Reis of Briar Cliff. Weiss advanced to the quarterfinal round and was a victory away from a top six finish.

Ethan Fitzler and Evan French each notched a victory for the Wildcats, as Fitzler won by major decision over Kalen Roth of Doane and French emerged victorious by fall over Connor Mahoney of Briar Cliff.

The Wildcats look for continued improvement in preparation for the UNK Loper Open in Kearney on Nov. 17, starting at 9 a.m.
