On Saturday, the Blackhawk grapplers traveled to Fort Atkinson for the 10th annual TKO (Terry Kramer Open). Seventeen teams were in attendance, comprised of nine D1 teams and eight D2 teams. 

PDC would finish second with 369.5 points, just 14 points behind D1 rated Slinger with 383.5. 

It was a team effort. Aside from the #1 seeds, every wrestler on the team finished higher than their seed. In addition, this was all done without PDC having a 220# wrestler available to score points. 

PDC crowned four champions, which was the most by any team at the tournament. Leading the way with championships for the Hawks were Matt Rogge, Traeton Saint, Bradyn Saint and Tyler Hannah. 

One of the many highlights for the day was Matt Rogge earning his 100th career win, joining just 14 others who have done this in PDC wrestling history.

106# Rhett Koenig: 2nd

113# Ryder Koenig: 4th

120# Maddox Cejka: 5th
