Pella fell to Oskaloosa in wrestling last night 47-35. It was a match filled with pins and technical falls as the entire meet lasted about an hour. Pella got wins from Kyle Langstraat at 112, Brent Smith who received a forefit at 135, Lane Whitaker won by technical fall at 160, Zack Stough won by pin in less than a minute at 171, AJ Arendahl bumped up a weight class to 215 and improved to 8-1 on the season with a pin, and freshman Houston Naakpeboren got a pin at heavyweight. Coach Joe Burch also noted he was happy with how David Wylie wrestled at 103 even though he didn’t get the win. Burch said the guys continue to improve and work hard and says they just need to continue working to get better as this season progresses. Pella is 1-4 in duals this season and will host the Pella tournament Saturday starting at 10am.
