Solid Season Debut for Central Wrestling

Central College opened the 2011 wrestling season Saturday with ten placewinners in the Knox Invitational in Illinois. Junior Joseph Atwell was Central’s highest finisher, claiming a runner-up finish at 157 pounds. The Dutch also got third-place finishes from top-seeded Greg Barner at 184 pounds and 125-pounder Bryan Connolly.

Twelve schools competed at the tournament, which kept no team scores. The Central College wrestling team opens its dual meet season at Wheaton tomorrow.
