Prairie du Chien grapplers to state as a team for 1st time


The Prairie du Chien High School wrestling team hoists their hardware in Lodi Tuesday night, showing off their Sectional Championship plaque. By winning, the Hawks earned a berth in the Team State Duals, which will take place on Saturday, March 7 in Madison at the Fieldhouse. It is the first time in school history Prairie du Chien has qualified for the Team State Tournament. (Photo submitted)

The third time would prove to be a charm, as the Prairie du Chien Wrestling Blackhawks traveled to Lodi on Tuesday evening to Team Sectionals with a berth to the Team State Tournament on the line. In 2018, PDC was defeated by Lodi at Team Sectionals in the semifinal round and in 2019 PDC was defeated by GET/Mel-Min in the Team Sectional finals. This year would prove to be different. After advancing to Team Sectionals by virtue their regional victory on Saturday, PDC would have much to celebrate at Lodi!
