Bulldog Grapplers Wrestle For Third Place as a Team

January 08, 2018

The Bulldog wrestlers got a 3rd place finish Saturday at the 14 team Wisner-Pilger Invitational. Although Creighton had no individual champs, all eleven Bulldogs won matches, contributing to their 127.5 points scored. Our boys were outscored by two Class A varsity teams. Ralston dominated, winning the championship, and Omaha Bryan was just 9.5 points ahead of the Bulldogs. East Butler, who we played our final football game of the year against, placed 4th. Seven Creighton wrestlers placed in the top 4, and the other four finished in the top six, one match short of a medal.
