W-F 57, Berlin 21
W-F improved its dual meet record to 4-5 with a nonconference win over the Indians.
Berlin forfeited five matches in the meet.

“This was a good team win to start the second half of the season,” Potratz said. “We competed hard and got pins when we put people on their backs. Some of our kids who have not won a lot of matches got wins tonight and that’s great.”
Mitchell Kramer (182) and David Miracle (220) picked up pins for Berlin, while Elliot Chier added a decision win.
Before the meet, the team recognized W-F’s back-to-back championship wrestling teams from the 1988-89 and 1989-90 seasons.

Kicherer won the 220-pound championship with a 3-0 record, including an overtime victory in the finals.
The Indians will head to Rosholt today (Thursday, Jan. 15) for a Central Wisconsin Conference matchup with the Hornets before traveling to Clintonville Saturday, Jan. 17, for the Clintonville Invitational. W-F will also host Markesan in nonconference action at 7 p.m. Thursday, Jan. 22.
