Lone Warrior Competes at Sioux City Open

SIOUX CITY, Iowa – Midland University’s men’s wrestling sent just one wrestler to the Sioux City Open on Saturday. The Warriors, who have been battling injury and illness lately, suited up Prestin Vondra at 141.

Vondra, a freshman from Tilton, Nebraska who was coming off a 3-0 weekend at the conference duals, wasn’t able to keep the momentum going at the always competitive open. He opened with a loss via fall to Andrew Shea of Briar Cliff and then saw his day come to a close with a narrow 10-8 loss via decision to Diego Guerrero of Iowa Western.

Midland will have a full week to get back some injured and sick wrestlers now as their next event isn’t until Thursday, February 13. They’ll host Hastings inside the Wikert Event Center. Start time is slated for 7:00 p.m. with the Warriors honoring their senior class beforehand.
