WATERTOWN, Wis. - The Lakeland College wrestling team was victorious in eight of nine contested classes in a 41-3 dual win over Maranatha Baptist Bible College Monday night.
The Muskies won their first Northern Wrestling Association dual of the season, taking three matches by forfeit and picking up three of their other five wins on points. Lakeland improved to 4-2 in dual meets this season.
The Muskies picked up their lone wins by fall at 133 and 157 lbs. Matt Damp (Fr.-Oconto Falls, Wis.) took down Zach Zimmerman in the first period at 133 lbs., and Matthew Weber (So.-Lockport, Ill.) also recorded a first period pin at 157 lbs. against Oliver Klein.

Lakeland also competed in the Cornell College Matman Wrestling Invitational in Mount Vernon, Iowa, where several Muskies took on a very competitive field of wrestlers.
