Central forfeits eight, Sparta cruises to 75-3 victory

Sparta used eight forfeits to cruise to a 75-3 victory over La Crosse Central Thursday night. The dual was a far cry from Central teams a decade ago that won back-to-back MVC titles. Now, they can’t even put a full team on the mat.  The one bright spot for Central was Ben Thornton’s victory at 113 over John Roddick. Thornton is the top ranked wrestler at 106 pounds in division one and was a state runner up last year.

Results from last night’s dual are below…

120  —  Brock Polhamus pinned James Werner (La Crosse Central) 3:01
126  —  Tristan Zurfluh won by forfeit
132  —  Derek VonRuden  won by forfeit
138  —  Paul Vantassel tech falled Koy Rolff (La Crosse Central) 16-0

The Spartans won’t have such an easy road Saturday when they head to the Kasson-Mantorville duals in Kasson, Minn.  Waiting for them is the top ranked Class AA (equivalent to D2 in Wisconsin) team in Minnesota as well as the 4th-ranked team. Full preview to come later.
