Cadet wrestlers down NFV, NBC, NH-TV; nab second at A-P Tourney

CRESCO - Competing for the first time at home this season on Dec. 10, the Crestwood wrestling team notched two dual wins as the Cadets pounded North Butler-Clarksville, 52-30; and edged North Fayette Valley, 37-36.
Two Crestwood grapplers are ranked in the top 10 according to The Predicament: Carter Fousek is No. 1 at 113 pounds and Wyatt Scheidel is No. 7 at 220 pounds.
In the dual against NFV, the score was tied at 36-all after 14 matches, but Crestwood was awarded one point on criteria for the least amount of forfeits (0) to earn the dual win.
“We didn’t wrestle our best against North Fayette Valley but all-in-all, we competed hard,” Coach Keith Slifka said. 
Facing New Hampton-Turkey Valley on Dec. 12 in New Hampton, the Cadets chalked up a 37-22 win.
“I was pleasantly surprised with how we wrestled against a good NH-TV team,” Slifka said. “Our younger wrestlers really stepped up when we needed them.”
