Joe Steinkamp is 1-0 as Central College’s women’s basketball coach after the Dutch beat Grinnell 99-82 last night at Kuyper Gym in their season opener. Meanwhile, the 15th-ranked Central wrestling team fell to #13 Coe 23-15 in their IIAC debut.

Six Dutch women scored in double figures in the victory, with Kaityln Johnson’s 20 points leading the way and Jackie Kriegel putting up an 11 point, 13 rebound double-double.

On the mat in Cedar Rapids, each team won five bouts, but all of Central’s were three-point victories, while the Kohawks had two falls and two major decisions. Both of Central’s ranked wrestlers, C.J. Pestano and Cam Timok, picked up wins to stay undefeated on the season.
