Posted: Tue, Jan 22, 2019 9:48 AM

The Decorah Viking wrestling team ran up against two powerhouse wrestling programs on Saturday in Osage.  The Vikings dropped a 44-22 decision to New Hampton and a 45-28 decision to Osage.

"NHTV and Osage are both quality top-ten teams and we battled well," said Viking head coach Jeff Freidhof.  He added, "As a team we need to continue to find ways to win one or two more matches throughout the dual to really get to the next level of competing."

Austin Wilkins at 106 pounds showed great improvement and won both matches Saturday.  Jackson Rolfs at 132 pounds is starting to hit his stride.  Andy Murphy and Daniel Schwartzhoff both were 2-0 at the double dual, while Dawson Palmer fought hard in his match at 182 pounds with New Hampton's Evan Rosonke before losing 10-6.

The Vikings will now shift their focus to the NEIC Conference Tournament and work on getting in a great week of preparation.
