Pella Wrestlers Fall in LHC Opener

The Pella wrestling team ran into a bit of a buzz saw last night in Norwalk, as the Warriors rolled to a 69-9 victory in the first Little Hawkeye Conference dual of the year for the Little Dutch.  Pella’s nine points came courtesy of wins at 155 and 171 pounds, as Kyle Langstraat won by fall and Jesse Blauw claimed an 8-5 decision.  Josh Ravenstein also wrestled well for the Little Dutch, but was edged 8-6 in overtime.  Pella Head Coach Joe Burch said that he continues to see improvement in his young team, but Norwalk is one of the top teams in the conference.
