A tough week on the mat sent the Central College wrestling team from the No. 9 in the National Wrestling Coaches Association Division III poll down to No. 24.

Individually, C.J. Pestano stayed to No. 2, while Cam Timok dropped to No. 10 after suffering his first defeat. Losses to No. 5 Loras College (25-12) and to No. 2 Wartburg College (39-6) cost the Dutch in the rankings as did a loss to unranked University of Dubuque (29-15). Central did knock off Buena Vista University (35-9) A 4-0 record in Central’s dual matches last week moved Pestano’s record to 21-0 on the season.

The Dutch will send a contingent of wrestlers to the Duhawk Open Saturday at Loras, starting at 9 a.m.
