Grand View Impressive, Again.

With only one senior, Grand View brings home the team title by 39.5 points

By Alex Peitz

The Grand View wrestling team headed to Marshall, Missouri this past weekend for the two day Missouri Valley College Invite and brought back the team title despite bringing one senior and not having any of their four national champs. The Viking faithful saw Elijah Sullivan (149) and Dallas Houchins (157) wrestle in the tournament finals: Sullivan dropping a 5-1 decision to 2nd ranked Jake Ekster of Missouri Valley while Houchins beat Missouri Valley’s 16th ranked Andrew Simmons, 5-2.

Friday’s first round match was the first tournament action Houchins has seen since placing 2nd at nationals last year. Houchins tore his ACL in the spring and was almost cleared to wrestle again before a tear in his meniscus sidelined him even longer. He returned to the mat for the Vegas duals in late December where he wrestled one match as well as two at national duals last week. The red shirt junior improved to a clean 8-0 heading into the most important part of the season.

Other bright spots for the Vikings came from Tristian Bundy (125), Jacob Colon (133), and Jake Laden (HWT) who all took third in their weight classes, while RS sophomore Logan Kellogg and RS Junior Tanner Werner both took fourth. For all results from the tournament, the link is below.

The Vikings travel to Oskaloosa, Iowa for a double dual against 10th ranked Missouri Valley and 16th ranked William Penn this Wednesday. The Missouri Valley Dual will be at 5pm while the William Penn dual will be a 8pm.
