Newark gets best of Timberwolves: Indian Creek fell in a close contest to Newark, 62-57.

Cogs split: Genoa-Kingston defeated hosts Rockford Lutheran, 48-24, and fell in a close 39-33 dual to Winnebago on Monday.

Jacob Bray (106 pounds), Luke Bennett (138) and Tristan Mangum (182) all picked up two victories.


Monarchs defeat Huskies: Old Dominion came to DeKalb and defeated Northern Illinois, 23-12.

The Huskies won three of the final four matches, with Caleb Bossett (285 pounds) winning by 7-4 decision, Will Feldkamp winning by 5-1 decision (184) and Brit Wilson (174) emerging victorious by 11-4 decision. Alijah Jeffery also won by a 7-4 decision at 133 pounds.

“We competed with heart and had some nice wins, but we have to work on technicalities,” coach Ryan Ludwig said in a release. “At 149 and 165, we had our chances to get victories. In those one-point matches, we have to find a way to break through ties and create scoring opportunities; we’ve got to try and finish in an offensive manner rather than defensive.”
