Four Blackhawk wrestlers advance to sectional

On Saturday, Feb. 13, the Blackhawk wrestling team traveled to River Valley for the WIAA D2 Regional. This is the start of the tournament series on the road to State. The top two individuals at each weight advance to the Sectional. As a team, Prairie du Chien/Wauzeka-Steuben finished third with 168 points behind Regional Champion River Valley and runner up Mount Horeb. 

PdC-WS was able to advance four individuals to next week’s Sectional meet. Clayton Beers (120#) and Peyton Hall (195#) were Regional Champs while Nick Rogge (132#) and Stephen Ronnfeldt (182#) finished as runner ups. 

Beers received the number one seed to draw a first round bye. In the semifinals Beers decked Eyre (Mt. Horeb) with a double arm bar for a fall. In the finals, Beers pinned Wipperfurth (River Valley) in the second period. 

Hall also had the number one seed and received a first round bye. In the semifinals Hall decked Neis (Cuba City) with a first period fall. He would do the same in the finals against Olinger (Mt. Horeb) and earn a first period fall. 

Nick Rogge recorded a first period fall over Taber (Belmont/Platteville) in quarterfinals. Rogge would record a second period fall against Steinhoff (Mt. Horeb) in the semifinals before falling to Jennings (River Valley: State Qualifier last year) 0-4 in the finals. 

Stephen Ronnfeldt had a first round bye. In the semifinals Ronnfeldt recorded a first period fall over Mahoney (River Valley) before being pinned in the second period by Blome (Mt. Horeb: State Runner Up last year) in the finals.
