Central’s Greiner To Wrestle At NCAA Nationals

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.
