For the first time since 2004, Central College will be wrestling in March. Friday night, freshman Kalen Greiner stunned two nationally ranked wrestlers in back-to-back overtime wins en route to a fourth-place finish at 125 pounds. That was good enough for him to gain a berth in the N-C-A-A Division three Championships in La Crosse, Wisconsin. The Dutch were seventh in the team standings for the second straight year but increased their point total from 49 to 83-point-five…which was just four points behind sixth-place Luther. Central placed in the top eight at all ten weights for the first time since 1996. Wartburg retained the title…crowning seven individual champions and racking up 206-point-five 5.
