The Lakeland Muskies finished with a 2-2 record at the Desert Duals in Las Vegas, Nevada on Monday. The Muskies defeated Central, Iowa 31-12 and Luther College, Iowa 27-16, while losing to Coe, Iowa 24-19 and Simpson, Iowa 30-14.
"It was a great experience for the guys," said head coach Pete Rogers. "They wrestled with all their heart. I think it was tough for some of these guys as they are so young, but they wrestled really well."
Lakeland started the day with a 31-12 victory over Central that saw Lakeland win four of the first five matches. Sophomore Calvin O'Neal lost his first match of the season as Adam Foreman had a 16-7 major decision. Sophomore Paul Hartt registered a pin for Lakeland at the 3:33 mark.
In the second dual of the day Lakeland fell to #21 Coe College, 24-19. The Muskies just needed one of their last three wrestlers to win in order pull off the upset, however, Coe came from behind in all three matches for the win. Freshmen Chris Klister and Cody Klopp each recorded pins for Lakeland.
The Muskies took on Luther College's second team in the third dual for Lakeland and walked away with a 27-16 decision. Senior Tim Vallier and sophomore Paul Hartt each recorded pins for Lakeland.
In the fourth and final dual of the day for Lakeland, the Muskies dropped a 30-14 match to Simpson. Freshman David Copp recorded the only pin for Lakeland.
