Wrestlers beat Dodgeville
PdC-WS matmen victorious
On Saturday night, the PdC-WS wrestling team took on visiting Dodgeville in front of a packed crowd in the Prairie du Chien gymnasium. The Blackhawks came away victorious 57-18 in the final dual of the season. The Blackhawks finished tied for third in the conference behind Lancaster and River Valley. The seniors were honored before the start of the dual. The team has seven senior wrestlers and one senior manager.
The following was a thought that was read to the seniors as they competed in their final competition in front of their home crowd:
Message from Coach Koenig to the Seniors:
“I want to take this moment to congratulate all of the seniors that have made wrestling their way of life in the winter over the last four years. I wish you all could see how far you have come in the sport since you started. I have seen progress over the last four years, but mom and dad have seen that progress in wrestling and in life since you first started school. Your hard work and dedication to the hardest sport in the world has not gone unnoticed and has made my life easier during your high school career. Knowingly or unknowingly, wrestling will make the rest of your lives easier to manage. When life challenges you, get back up, just as you do in the wrestling room and keep going. I will miss you, the fans will miss you, the school will miss you, and believe it or not you will miss this, which helps make you who you are “a wrestler.” Thank you from the entire community and myself.”
