The Decorah Viking wrestling team had one victory and one loss at the Caledonia Triangular Meet in Houston County on Friday evening.  The Vikings first beat St. Charles 46 to 32, then dropped a 43-27 decision to host Caledonia.

The Vikings let a couple matches slip away early in the St. Charles dual, but were able to rally, in part because freshman Dakota Swatek wrestled at 195 pounds, where he not only picked up his first varsity win but also first varsity fall. 

Against Caledonia Philip Ihde became the 18th wrestler in school history to reach 100 wins. Head coach Jeff Freidhof praised Ihde, saying, "He has been a constant performer since his freshmen year, but he has bigger goals yet ahead this season."
