The No. 15 Division III Central Dutch wrestling team came out of Rock Island, Illinois with two dual wins over Knox and host Augustana on Thursday. Central started by facing Knox and won 57 – 0 with the help of five pin falls by Daniel Page, Aaron Anderson, Ryan Davis, Joseph Atwell and Tyler Lowy. The tough match came against an also-ranked No. 19 Augustana, but Central would prevail 27 – 12. Joseph Atwell recorded another pin at 157 pounds while Theron Stewart and Jake Crawford each added a pin to help the cause. Central now owns a 3 – 1 dual record and will have a break for finals before flying down to Florida to face a cornucopia of Division III schools at the Gulf Coast Duals in Fort Myers on December 16.
