Girls wrestle well at Wilton

Bulldog wrestlers Kadence Pape and Mackenzie Bachman performed well at the Wilton JV and Women’s Wrestling Tournament on Dec. 18.


Pape, a junior, placed third in the HS Female 6 class. She started the day off strong, pinning Bettendorf’s Lauren Rogalla in just 35 seconds, before losing by fall in two tough matches. Pape’s round two match against Caitlin Reiter of Pleasantville went over five minutes and the round three bout with East Buchanan’s Destiny Krum went over three minutes.


Bachman finished fourth in the HS Female 15 class. Despite going 0-3, the freshman wrestled three strong matches. That included a nearly five-minute match in round one, which she lost by fall to Phoenix Gryp of Williamsburg.
