Great effort sets numerous records

The Prairie du Chien wrestling Blackhawks made history on Saturday at Mineral Point by winning their first-ever SWC/SWAL Clash title. 

They didn’t just win the title, they broke several program records in doing so. PdC had an outstanding tournament, scoring 272.5 points (most points ever scored at the tournament, surpassing the 272 points scored last year) in the 13-team tournament to outdistance second-place Mineral Point (249.5 points) and third place Fennimore (239 points). 

It was a team effort, on the strength of six champions (the most in a single year in program history; the previous record was two), two 4th place finishers, two 5th place finishers, one 7th place finisher and one 8th place finisher.

Matt Rogge, Bradyn Saint, and Traeton Saint became just the 4th, 5th, and 6th PdC wrestlers to ever win two Clash titles. Rhett Koenig and Luke Kramer became the first freshmen in program history to ever win a Clash title. Tyler Hannah also became a four-time Conference Champ (three titles in the Coulee Conference and one more at the Clash).
