EV-W wrestlers tame the Tigers at Browerville By Pat Garry, Staff writer The EV-W Eagle grapplers bat- tled the Tigers at Browerville last Tuesday, Jan. 22, and walked away with a 39-26 victory. The win was vital for the Eagles, as they draw nearer to the sectionals and the all-important seeding. Coach Dan Berg realized how tough the victory was. "We got the win against Browerville, but it was a hard-earned one. We are without a handful of guys right now and hope to get them back this week." The short-handed Eagles squad was forced to make some adjust- ments. "We bumped a couple of guys around to get better matches, but unfortunately we lost both of them," said Berg. Zach Bloni- gen wrestled Adam Sutlief, going up two weight classes to meet the challenge, while Luke Kuechle moved up to face Butler at 170 lbs. "I really like when guys will go up or down to take on a challenge. I know our two guys lost, but they wanted to give it a try," said Coach Berg. Matches won by falls include sophomore Tyler Donnay, ll3-pounds; junior Cain Rennet, 145-pounds; freshman John Salzl, 152-pounds; and eighth-grader John Unterberger, 160-pounds.
