The East Central Conference meet was the final regular-season dual for the Panthers who finished 2-4 in the ECC and 6-10 overall. PHS won three more duals than last season when it posted a 3-14 overall record.

The Indians forfeited five matches which gave PHS 30 points.

“Berlin has a small team but some tough individuals. Berlin put up a great fight but it was nice to walk away with a victory. Having most of our team back and healthy really made the difference in the dual,” said Panther head coach Ben Chapman.

“Erik Ohman continues to wrestle strong and won by fall. You could tell his aggressiveness and strength helped decide the match.

“Jesse Schwarten also stepped up big in his first match of the year with a pin in the first period. Jesse is a very strong, athletic kid that can do a lot of things most of his opponents are unable to do,” said Chapman.

“Nathan Francis [145-pounder] had his first match of the year after dealing with a leg injury. It didn’t end in a victory but it was nice to see him out on the mat.

“You could tell he was a little nervous but it was good to get it out of his system before the conference tournament,” said the coach.
